When Turns and I were at uni together studying for our actuarial degrees, we teamed up with Dave and Moses (not ‘the’ Moses) to start an Actuarial Bible Study Group, or ABS.

They were good times. We met up once a week (roughly) and read the bible together. We even studied a Matthias study, “Cash Values”, for a while in preparation for hitting the workforce.

I’ve mentioned before (see reproduced post below) that I think Actuaries possibly have a natural disposition to become Christians.

So it’s perhaps not surprising that the ABS has continued into my working life! We have a group of actuaries here at work who meet up very irregularly to read the bible together. We have about 4 core members and a few others. Yesterday we even had 2 new faces! Praise God!

We have been working our way through Hebrews looking at how Jesus is the reality that the old covenant foreshadowed. It’s been fabulous!

abs was great. Remember we had overhead slides made up, and would go up in front of the lectures and advertise for it? That was nerve racking, but a good thing to do.

How do you advertise for your bible study group?

Do you have a name? How about PIG – PWC’ers Investigating God

Advertising is purely word of mouth at the moment. Hard to say how effective that is except that we have had some newcomers. Big tall Nathan is good at inviting people.

How about PwC Actuaries Reading Together The Holy Revelation of our Eternal Emancipator – PART THREE! (Actuarial joke šŸ™‚ )
