For those of you who keep track of the biblical holiday, you know that Pentecost (Shavuot) starts at sundown on Thursday, May 28 and end at sundown on Friday, May 29. Because this is a high biblical Sabbath, our offices will be closed on Friday.
Because we will already be closed on Friday, we have elected to remain open on Memorial Day to better serve our student body. We do recognize our vets (I am one of them) and will be ready to serve them as the LORD enables us.
Over the years, BLCS has striven to provide updates, articles and teachings to our student body through printed newsletters for decades. Most of our students do not realize that the printing and mailing on just one four-paged newsletter costs BLCS several thousand dollars. The truth is, there is so much more we are wanting to share with you.
After much prayer and research, we have decided to go completely digital with our free publications. This will allow us the freedom to develop more depth articles and provide a much wider range of materials for those hungry for more of God.
Beginning in July of this year, we will release the first Biblical Life Journal – Digital Edition. It will be a full magazine in PDF format that will be posted in our on-line digital library. We also have many other projects underway, such as expanding the Mentor’s Tips in PDF, MP3 teachings and seminars and even several books! We also plan on using our BLOG quite a bit more to keep everything informed.
Here is the link to our digital library:
As more ministries and individuals make the switch to digital media in the form of both CD and MP3, it is getting harder for our supplies to obtain the cassette albums we have used for years.
Just recently our supplier, Kingdom Tapes, could not get the 12 album holders we have used since the early ‘90’s from the manufacturer in white and we had to settle for chocolate. Although this is a temporary fix, we can see the handwriting on the wall for these supplies.
You are going to have to phase out audio cassettes and only use CD and MP3 CD formats. We hope by the end of the year to have the transition complete for all of our lecture sets. There are about eight courses that we will need to convert all lectures from cassette to digital.
If you are going to order any course lectures on audio cassette, you will need to place your order before the end of the year. After that time, all lectures will be in CD or MP3 CD formats only.
