Bring Your Bible to School Day

Bring Your Bible to School Day

The Christian faith has existed for hundreds of centuries. Freedom of speech has been a key principle in America’s success and diversity. This ideology is reflected in Bring Your Bible to School Day. It encourages students to bring their Bibles to school to support their faith.

Focus on the Family started Bring Your Bible to School Day in 2014 as a response against American schools removing bibles out of public schools. Biblica reports that the event has gained popularity over time. In 2014, there were 8,000 participants, followed by 155,000 in 2015. Then, in 2016, 356,000 people participated. This was with all 50 states represented. In 1962 and 1963, the U.S Supreme Court declared that bible reading in public schools was unconstitutional and took out bibles from schools.

Biblica reports that public schools have continued to take bibles from students and restrict their ability to share their faith with others since then. Focus on the Family, an American Christian organisation that helps families and offers resources to those who live a Christian lifestyle, created this holiday to encourage students and their Bibles to be brought to school. It is a right to freedom of speech as well as freedom of religion.

Their primary goal is to make sure students feel comfortable speaking up and reading the Bible in their spare time. Focus on the Family urges students and their families to contact the Alliance Defending Freedom, a group of Christian lawyers to protect their right to live their faith, as well as to check out the school’s policies and conduct codes.

You can talk with your friends online through your social media websites about public schools and bibles and create a discussion forum about the topic, using #bringyourbibletoschoolday as a hashtag. You can give out conversation cards to your friends at school and set up challenges and games with Christian friends on topics related to the bible. After you have reviewed the school policies, you can bring your bible to school so that you can read it during recess. You can share your faith stories with others and listen to the stories of your friends.
