Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Tons of Tickets

I can officially get ready for school now. I finished my bulletin board.

For the last three years, I have been using the Bible verse for Lutheran Schools Week. This year, it is Matthew 20:28. I’m glad that it’s a Gospel verse. I like Gospel bulletin boards better than Law ones.

The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many

I focused on the “gave his life as a ransom for many” part. And I slanted it up and to the right. I read somewhere that a slanted line that goes from low left to high right is supposed to convey a positive feeling to the viewer.

The left half of the bulletin board is blank so I can hang student work during the course of the year.

    That is FANTASTIC! I love the JN316 – that is positively inspired. Dang, Brad, you need to post this stuff to the #LuthEd Facebook page.

    I do believe you could write a book for teachers. Half the book bulletin board ideas and the other half chapel messages. Something to do in your spare time!! Love this bulletin board!!

    THANK YOU for sharing another of your amazing bulletin boards – ideas and execution are top notch, as usual. What a great message to start off a new school year. And yes, optimists tend to write on an upslant left to right. Nice touch!
