Bring Your Own Bible

National Bring your Own Bible to School Day was on Thursday October 3 this year. To get the word out, high school students who regularly attend the First Baptist Church of Herrin stood outside the school from 7:00 to 8:00 in the morning to hand out free bibles to those who didn’t own one but wanted to participate in the event. These students had King James Version Bibles and English Standard Version Bibles on display for their peers to take.

 

Several students including Tiffany Young (12), Ava Greiner (9), Jolene Fraley (9), Andrea Craig (9), and Tangela Moore (9) helped distribute Bibles to their fellow students. “I really saw God working in people’s lives, and I’m glad people had the courage to take one even though they could’ve gotten negative feedback from the other students,” said Fraley. “Some of the students that took a Bible might not have been religious but wanted to try it. I’m glad my church put this together so students could have the opportunity to see how endlessly amazing God’s love is,” Fraley stated. 

 

Everybody at Herrin High School has the right to express their own individuality. While religion might not be everybody’s cup of tea, there are many other ways to get you and your interests out there. With a teacher’s consent, all students are free to advertise and form their own after-school clubs. High school is a great time to discover and express yourself, so why not try it?
