Welcome to the experiment!

What this is

In a phrase: A bible-centered book study based on the reading of a fiction book.

The study is based on Parts 1-3 of The Star Fall series. Right now, the study is in a construction (or beta) phase, so any and all input is appreciated. Online, please feel free to leave any comments here at the bottom of this post, or on the Facebook live stream.

Who am I to be doing this?

My name is Shanna Terese Bude, pastor’s daughter, life-long practicing Christian, and life-long fiction writer. (Really, I’ve been creating and telling stories for literally as long as I can remember.) In my twenties, I ended up graduating from seminary with a Master’s Degree in Christian Education – and then again, with a Master’s Degree in Theology focusing on the History of the Earth Church.

My entire life, I’ve had two real dreams: to (1) be a novelist, and (2) develop programming for and teach in the church. This proto-type study is the first step in the marriage of those two dreams. Because, guess what, they are extremely compatible – as I hope to show in this very lesson.

A big thanks to Christ Methodist Church, for, first, keeping me on their payroll all this time… And, now, providing me with a venue for this experiment. I am hoping to build a program for future use here. I truly hope you get something out of all this as well.

Below are the videos I have created for this lesson.
