I was amazed to see that I just posted my 1000th post! Wow….did I really write that much?  That was exciting!!
I thought that to celebrate, I would offer a giveaway!!

I thought I would offer two giveaways for this occasion….what are they? Why books of course!!! <p>
In order to enter, please comment on this blog post and tell me what is your favorite season and why? <p>

Already Gone by Ken Ham
If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good.

This is the alarming conclusion from a study Answers in Genesis commissioned from America’s Research Group, led by respected researcher Britt Beemer. The results may unnerve you – they may shake long-held assumptions to the core-but these results need to be taken seriously by the church. Already Gone reveals:

Why America’s churches have lost an entire generation of believers

The views of 1,000 twenty-somethings, solidly raised in the church but no longer attending-and their reasons why

Relevant statistical data effectively teamed with powerful apologetics

The study found that we are losing our kids in elementary, middle school, and high school rather than college, and the Sunday school syndrome is contributing to the epidemic, rather than helping alleviate it. This is an alarming wake-up call for the church, showing how our programs and our children are paying the price. Though the statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience, Already Gone shows how to fight back for our families, our churches, and our world. We can make a difference today that will affect the statistics of tomorrow in a positive and Christ-focused way!

And the second giveaway will be a surprise pack of Christian fiction of at least 2 books, but maybe more….<p>

    My favorite season is: the next season on the calendar. Why? Because I love the feeling of anticipation. There is a sense of freedom that comes from the expectation of a new season. Freedom from the normalcy of today's season. A sort of escape. I'd love to be entered to win the fiction giveaway. And congrats on your 100th entry! Kathy Carlton Willis WillisWay (at) aol (dot) com

    I'm entering for the video by Ken Ham. My favorite season is Winter. I live in North Carolina, so we have a relatively mild winter, but I love the cold days of bundling up and drinking hot chocolate and apple cider. It's also my favorite time of year because it's when we celebrate our Savior's birth.

    The quote here was interesting, and I didn't realize that Sunday school had anything to do with children leaving the church. While reading that would be interesting (although my dc don't go to SS anyway) my life right now rarely allows me to read two sentences together, so reading anything academic is risky. I'd like to enter for the fiction books. Easier reading!
    My favourite season is fall. We run a Bible camp, and in the fall we finally get some time to ourselves. We love the ministry, but it does get tiring by the end of the summer.

    I would love to win "Already Gone" as I watched many in my church go through this.

    sorry! favorite season is fall. Not sure why something about the freshness, the crispness, just feels like possibilities.
