Thursday, Oct. 3rd is Bring Your Bible to School Day across the nation where students will celebrate their religious freedom. Sponsored by Focus on the Family, Bring Your Bible To School Day is a way for students to express their belief in God’s Word. This is not a voluntary event, but is up to students and student groups to participate and lead activities in their respective schools. More than half a million students are expected to participate this year as the annual student led event reaches it’s sixth year. This year Focus on the Family will challenge students to put into practice the “Live It” aspect of the events “Bring It. Share It. Live it.” Motto. Students and their families will be given monthly challenges they can take to live out their Christian faith in their schools and communities.
Earlier this year New Orleans Saints Quartback, Drew Brees partnered with Focus on the Family to promote Bring Your Bible To School Day. Brees filmed a video in support of kids bringing their Bibles to school. On the FocusOnTheFamily.com website Brees states in part, “I want to encourage you to live out your faith on Bring Your Bible To School Day and share God’s love with friends. You’re not alone.”
Throughout the day students will share their experiences on social media sites using the hashtag #BringYourBible.
