I had a very cool opportunity to talk about the Holy Spirit today w some friends! These are some reasons why I love getting to study the Bible in a small group:
*I get to hear what God is saying to other people
*my understanding of God broadens when I get to hear the perspectives of other people
*God challenges me in ways that I don’t always hear by myself
*I love the mutual support for each other that a small group can provide
*I love the “a-ha” moments when the light goes on for me when I sense the Holy Spirit’s presence, truth & revelation; I love getting to see this happen as well in others
Growing as a person often happens through our relationships & interactions w others

I’m sitting in class having (participle of time) just finished (perfect stative) my final. We did (aorist) alot of work related to Romans 5-8 (dependant clause) & I’m kind of pumped because I can basically read much of Romans 5-8 in greek (content clause). As a side note, I’ve memorized (perfect, consummative) so much grammar stuff that if you were talk to me now (conditional clause), you might rightfully think that I’m a bit on the freak side (possibly optative but probably indicative).
Holy Cow!!! Whoever thinks of this stuff is really smart – would that I could attain such intellectual heights.
Needless to say, I’ll be happy to head home in the snow & brace for tomorrow’s onslaught. I also have to say that I’ve been having some completely outrageous times w God, hearing Him w tremendous clarity, sensing His presence, connecting to His love . . . . . in my heart, I’m so captivated by Him.
