 BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR TEENS? As Christmas approaches, a new Barna survey suggests the greatest gift parents can give their teens this year is to sit down and read the Bible with them.  The survey found that America’s teens emulate the beliefs of their parents’ overwhelmingly positive views of the Bible BUT are reading it less than Millennials and all U.S. adults. -64% of teens and 54% of adults only read the Bible 3 to 4 times a year or less. -Around 70% of teens, between the ages of 13 and 17, said the biggest reason for not regularly reading the Bible…”too busy.”    Source: American Bible Society and Barna Research        http://goo.gl/YcFt51

Life can change so quickly. Two weeks ago former President Jimmy Carter was telling his Sunday School class he was cancer free.  Two days ago, he shared that his 28 year old grandson (Jeremy Carter) passed away unexpectedly. Jeremy was only 28.

The grandson hadn’t been feeling well Saturday and went to take a nap at his family’s home in Peachtree City before he died. Jeremy Carter is the son of Annette and Jeff Carter, who is Jimmy Carter’s youngest son.     http://goo.gl/PVmc9M
