Wesley foundation digs deep into relationships with bible study

The Wesley Foundation, Methodist Student Center is hosting Song of Solomon Bible Study program every Tuesday at 7 p.m. Based on the book in the Bible, it is designed to teach students about healthy relationships with members of the opposite sex.Rev. Max Adams, director of the Wesley Foundation, says the book is about the relationship Solomon had with a woman he deeply loved and how beautiful a relationship can be. Students watch a video about the message Song of Solomon sends and are divided by gender to discuss what they have learned. Adams brought the bible study to SHSU after hearing about its success on other college campuses. “Originally, I had heard really good things from other campus ministries that had used it, and so I wanted to check it out and see if it would work for college students,” Adams said. Adams is pleased with the response. “The students are enjoying it. It’s packed full of incredible information for students dealing with relationships,” said Adams.The Bible study will only be held this semester, but Adams said it would return in the future.Junior Matt Smith said the Bible study helps students deal with more than just a relationship with God.”It’s an issue facing many college students. Not only relationships with our creator, but relationships with loved ones and those of the opposite sex”, said Smith.Smith said he has been greatly helped by the Bible study and believes it can help others. “It has helped me understand the importance of the needs of people of the opposite sex,” Smith said.Sophomore Danielle Bell is also pleased with the study. “It’s an eye opener on how relationships need to be,” Bell said.”It can teach us a lot about relationships”, said Lori Adams, wife of Rev. Adams.The Wesley Foundation, Methodist Student Center is located at 1632 University Avenue. The center hosts other activities during the week from Sunday through Wednesday nights.
