>What Quizzing SHOULD Be All About

>This is a shot from the 2010 Bible Quiz Fellowship National Tournament in Pittsburgh, Pa a few weeks ago. This picture was snapped before the third “stage” quiz (the top three teams compete, but in order to win a team must take two “first” places…so it is more-than-a-bit-tense!).

Don’t know who suggested it (UPDATE – I’ve been informed that Jim Cicchesee of TFC Wis/Minn, coach and director, suggested the prayer), or if it was spontaneous; but obviously the Spirit of God was involved as these 21 teens and coaches gathered together, arms around shoulders, to pray that Christ would be honored during this climactic quiz.

There are many, many things more important than statistics, trophies, and fleeting “fame”:

By the way, I have no idea what caused that photographic glitch on the back of my head that looks like a bald spot 🙂

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
