Q2010 is going to be a fantastic time as we celebrate 50 years of Bible quizzing.  I really hope we can get a large group from chicago central.  You can quiz with your local team, on a district team, or both! you will get placed on district teams according to your experience level and its a great way to really make friends across the district.  All of the coaches should have received an email with price details and a registration form.  If you did not recieve info, please call or email me so that I can get the information to you as soon as possible.  Individual registrations with deposits are due starting in February.  If you register in February, the deposit is $30.  after that, its 35.  We are working on transportation options to ensure everyone can get there safely. We are still looking for a few district coaches, chaperones, and vans so contact me if you're interested in that as well!  i hope everyone will consider attending this tournament.  

Don't forget district celebrate life is coming up Feb. 26-27 at chicago 1st.  Registrations are due no later than Feb 22nd. For more details...check out the ccdnyi homepage!  

it was awesome seeing so many of you at snowball retreat!  See you in a few weeks!

Hey everyone!!

I hope that all of you have had a fantastic Christmas season, and that your lives have been full of Joy and Celebrations.  We had a great first christmas with Ruby, and are truly blessed in every area of life. 

A few reminders-the next quiz is fast approaching at Chicago 1st on January 9th. we will be quizzing over all of 1st Corinthians and the first 5 chapters of 2 corinthians. Registration is open.

Also, at the January Quiz, we will put all quizzers who have at least 3 forum entries from November 15-Jan. 7 into a drawing, and one quizzer will win a sterling registration for his/her team.  Encourage your quizzers to get in there and chat! 

A reflection for the year to come.

As we look into 2010 we look at a block of time. We see 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes, 31,536,000 seconds. And all is a gift from God. We have done nothing to deserve it, earn it, or purchased it. Like the air we breathe, time comes to us as a part of life.

    The gift of time is not ours alone. It is given equally to each person. Rich and poor, educated and ignorant, strong and weak—every man, woman and child has the same twenty-four hours every day.

    Another important thing about time is that you cannot stop it. There is no way to slow it down, turn it off, or adjust it. Time marches on.

    And you cannot bring back time. Once it is gone, it is gone. Yesterday is lost forever. If yesterday is lost, tomorrow is uncertain. We may look ahead at a full year’s block of time, but we really have no guarantee that we will experience any of it.

    Obviously, time is one of our most precious possessions. We can waste it. We can worry over it. We can spend it on ourselves. Or, as good stewards, we can invest it in the kingdom of God.   --Steven Cloud
