This is a bit of an unusual post for iBelieveBible, but we felt that a personal note was necessary and appropriate at a time like this. Needless to say, 2020 and 2021 have been tumultuous and difficult years for many people. This is true for us here at iBB as well. While we have been steadily working on quite a lot of new content, those of you who were regularly viewing this site and our associated social media accounts will likely have noticed that our content rollout has slowed down pretty dramatically since January of this year.
While our team has been working from home to keep making content, the reality is that for various reasons, our work has become more difficult due to the circumstances surrounding the ongoing pandemic. This isn't anything unique; plenty of people have found the adjustment to working from home to be challenging. We are functioning with fewer people, less structure, and more responsibilities being concentrated in a small handful of people. None of this is "bad" or anyone's fault per se, but it has meant that you have seen fewer videos and blog posts from us.
While we are still actively working on new video content, I realized recently that for many people, this blog was a useful source of Bible study content, and I think it would be a shame for that to disappear entirely. And I think it is reasonable for this blog to function as a blog even if our posts don't necessarily always have a designated iBelieveBible video to go with them. I have been doing a lot of theological reading over the course of the pandemic, and I have lots that I want to share with people.
So, my commitment starting today, is to begin putting out a new blog post every week on Friday, the same way we used to, whether or not we have a video ready to go. This way, we can still bring you Bible study content regardless of whether or not we have an original video ready to go.
Feel free to message us on our social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube) about topics you'd like to see us cover. I will also probably be doing more interactive quizzes on Instagram, which people seem to find fairly fun.
Here's to being flexible and finding ways to keep things moving, in spite of many challenges. I hope you are doing as well as possible, whoever and wherever you are.
Thanks for taking the time to be part of our journey of sharing the Bible.
