Once the ladies have arrived, serve the tea and the scones. They will be sure to ask, so have copies of the recipes ready to go. Now gather into a comfortable sitting area and hand out the student copies of the pages that you will be studying that month. Using your teacher copy of the lesson begin by asking anyone if they know the definition of the word you are studying. Only allow an answer or two. Then read the correct answer and allow them to fill in the blanks. Now go through the Bible study by asking them the question. Allow a few people to answer. Too many answers and the study will go too long. Then have them look up the scripture references and write them in the blanks. Now ask if this changes any opinions from the original answers. Open the floor for a few prayer requests that have to do with the subject that you covered. Finish with a group prayer.

STRAWBERRY TEA

INGREDIENTS 2 1/2 cups hot water 5 tablespoons Iced Tea Mix with Sugar and Lemon 1/4 cup strawberry preserves 1 cup ice cubes 2 straberry slices DIRECTIONS Combine water, Tea Mix with preserves Refrigerate for least 2 hours Strain and serve over ice with strawberry slices as garnish

INGREDIENTS

STRAWBERRY SCONES

1 3/4 cups unbleached flour 4 tablespoons butter, refrigerated 2 tablespoons baking powder 1/2 cup fruit juice concentrate 1/4 cup milk, plus 1 tablespoon 1 teaspoon lemon zest 2 cups sliced strawberries 4 tablespoons strawberry jam

DIRECTIONS

Stir the flour and baking powder together. Cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix the fruit juice concentrate and milk together, stir in the lemon zest. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour in the liquid and begin to mix together using a rubber spatula. The dough should come together forming a ball, yet remain fairly sticky. Knead the dough a few times until it forms a workable ball so it still has its stickiness-you may need to work in an extra tablespoon or two of flour. Put the dough down to a circle about 3/4-inch thick, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least one hour. Floour a baking sheet Cut the dough with a serrated knife down the middle. Place the bottom half of the scone dough on the baking sheet, lay the sliced strawberries evenly and place dollops of the jam to cover the bottom half. Lay the top of the scone dough over this and crimp the edges together. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Cut the dough into 8 equal pie-shaped wedges. Brush the top with a little milk or egg whites if you want a shinier appearance. Bake for 14 minutes or until browned.

LOVE

Love - The ancient Greeks had four different words we translate love. It is important to understand the difference between the words: 1. "Eros" was one word for love. It described, as we might guess from the word itself, erotic love. It refers to sexual love. 2. "Storge" was the second word for love. It refers to family love, the kind of love there is between a parent and child, or between family members in general. 3. "Philia" is the third word for love. It speaks of a brotherly friendship and affection. It is the love of deep friendship and partnership. It might be described as the highest love of which man, without God's help, is capable of. 4. "Agape" is the fourth word for love. It is a love that loves without changing. It is a self-giving love that gives without demanding or expecting re-payment. It is love so great that it can be given to the unlovable or unappealing. It is love that loves even when it is rejected. Agape love gives and loves because it wants to; it does not demand or expect repayment from the love given. It gives because it loves, it does not love in order to receive. It can be defined as a sacrificial, giving, absorbing, love. The word has little to do with emotion; it has much to do with self-denial for the sake of another. It is interesting to note that the Greek word "Agape" is a word that was coined exclusively for the New Testament; it was never found in classical Greek and they knew nothing of this Agape, the divine love of God.

How should we love God? Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. Why should we love God? Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. What Benefit is there in loving God? Deu 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. Psa 145:20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: Who else should we love? Mar 12:31 ... Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; If ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. Can we ever lose God's love? Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
