Pop-Up Bible Study| January 2017
If you don't follow me on social media, then you probably haven't caught wind about the exciting pop-up bible studies I began last September. I had a vision sometime last summer of creating an opportunity for my peers to gather and study the word of God in a new environment.
I've always been a foodie at heart and enjoy trying out new restaurants. In addition to being a foodie, I also have a passion for teaching and studying the bible. Thus, birthed "MsYencko's Pop-Up Bible Study" Series, where every other month I host a bible study in a great restaurant and offer the opportunity for millennials to gather and nourish their bodies and souls simultaneously.
I decided I would review these pop-ups for y'all here-- as this continues to grow, I hope to document all of the amazing things we experience and learn.
We were hosted by Lolo's Chicken & Waffles in Southlake, TX. One of my Instagram followers suggested the place to me. On a whim I visited and they were so gracious in accepting to host.
The food was so BOMB-- let me tell y'all that this food was even better than Roscoe's...I'm not even playing. Most of the guests ordered the chicken & waffles, on a scale of 1-5, the taste was a 4, because the chicken was well seasoned! I encourage you all to try it out when you're in the area-- it'll make a great place for dinner when you're craving breakfast food.
Our study was taken from Psalms 37:7-11 and we spent time exploring the perspective of David and his captivity. We wove through themes of the emotions he battled in this season how it often relates to our turmoil of seeing others succeed and how we get locked up in the caves of our fears. To say the least it was deep-- the presence of God was there with us in a profound way. The best part of the night, where it ended was when we spoke about meekness.
This scripture left all most of us checking our own hearts. I loved how one of the attendees broken down meekness. She noted how meekness in Hebrew referred to the posture of priests when they entered the presence of God in the temple. That the meekness referred to the lowly fetal like posture they had to collapse into just to fit into that sacred place. We all digested the frailty of meekness in it being a much higher form of humility but how necessary meekness is to fulfilling our purposes.
I'm still in awe of the direction this discussion went, and I'm still grateful God led us to discuss meekness. My heart is entirely full!
The next pop-up is on Thursday March 16th, 2017. If you are in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area, I encourage you to join us. It's an incredibly rewarding time. Keep up with my social media for updates! I hope you liked the review of the pop-up? I enjoyed sharing all about this.
Grace & Peace,
The many faces of Yencko while teaching... 🙈
