MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug. 1 / Christian Newswire/ -- America's 10th annual, nationwide, "Scriptures in Schools Week" is scheduled for September 23-29.
"The only people keeping the Bible out of America's public schools are - us Christians. It's not the ACLU, Supreme Court, or School Boards: It's just us," says Bob Pawson, SIS Week National Coordinator. "We can remedy this situation by simply bringing in our Bibles. By the millions. Let's fill America's public schools with God's Word. Lovingly, graciously, faithfully, thoroughly, and legally."
SIS Week inspires bold, visionary enthusiasm among students nationwide, who realize that they are participant-leaders in a cross-generational Salt-&-Light Revival springing from their creative use of "Academic Evangelism"; along with millions of other kids, teens, and teachers all across America: 12th grade thru Kindergarten.
"Every church in America has public school students and employees in their congregations," says Pawson. "Please educate, motivate and activate them to bring their Bibles to school. Make it a local-missions priority for your Youth Groups. Return Bibles to our public schools. Restore basic Biblical literacy to all of America's children. Organize now. Hold multi-church rallies and concerts before SIS Week. Wear Christian t-shirts at school."
"Dare to bring your Bibles - all year long. We can make Bibles commonplace texts in America's schools once again," says Pawson, a Trenton, NJ public school teacher. "Tote 'em and quote 'em! And use 'em in class!"
Christian students in public schools should creatively use appropriate Bible references to complete some of their in-class assignments and homework weekly. Christian public school teachers should readily accept such assignments.
Christian broadcasters, publications, internet ministries, coffeehouses, and performing artists are encouraged to promote SIS Week: Now through late September. Help activate Youth Groups in thousands of churches. SIS Week complements other national events including 'See You at The Pole' and 'Adopt-A-School for Christ'. Parents can participate by bringing Bibles to work.
All Christians reading this article: Please exercise personal initiative and leadership to promote/publicize SIS Week in your sphere of influence. Don't wait for a leader: Be one. Recruit helpers.
