My octogenarian blogging friend, Olive Morgan of Octomusings, has posted today that she has just begun Disciple IV, ‘The Tree of Life’. Some of my readers know that I have struggled to get a foothold in the Blackburn Circuit for the Disciple Bible Study course, so it strangely warms my heart to hear of Methodists somewhere already on the fourth course! I am a huge fan of Disciple – it is one of the best things the United Methodist Church has produced.
Olive, I pray that you and the 11 others on the course will have a wonderful time.
I am due to start one of the Disciple short courses on the Gospel of John beginning Wednesday. Having run the 34-week Disciple 1, I have been unable to get many more takers for another course. So, we will see how the shorter 11-week course goes.
