Many of have asked me, “what exactly is Bible Block?” That is a good question. Well let me share with you a little more about this amazing gathering.
The last Sunday of each month a group of ladies get together at the Millarville Community Church, the home of Bible Block – ours anyways. We then share some wonderful tea, goodies and time visiting with each other. Once we’ve had our fill, Beth gets up and shares an amazing Bible story. She is such a gifted story teller, I could listen to her for hours on end. The Bible story she shares follows the theme of the year’s Bible Blocks. As I mentioned before this year’s is God’s names in the Old Testament. Once the story is finished and we are all left in awe of what we heard, Jan shares which quilt block will accompany the story. The blocks name either symbolizes what was taught or in some instances is named after the place the story took place.
Name of God: Elohim
Block 2: Abraham’s Victory
Name of God: El Elyon
Story: El Elyon
No picture of this block will be shown as it is not pretty right now…lets leave it at that.
Block 3: God’s Eye
Name of God: El Roi
Name of God: El Shaddai
Name of God: I am Who I am (Jehovah)
Name of God: Jehovah Rapha
Story: Moses at Marah
Block 7: Smokehouse Block
Name of God: Jehovah Qadhosh
Story: Nadab and Abihu (Sons of Aaron)
Those are the blocks so far, we need two more to complete it as well as a bunch of the log cabins to fill in the spaces.
I hope that answered your questions about what Bible Block is. You should see if a church around you is offering this great thing and maybe give it a try.
