Stage 1

UBF is all about discipline. The first discipline I learned at UBF Bible study was to examine myself. The weekly meetings became an exercise of self-discipline, self-control and self-critique. Looking back now, it seemed as if we all sat around tables and stared at our reflection in a mirror, week after week. Being naturally introverted, this was not unusual to me. The primary Bible teaching in our minds became “Deny yourself!” And so we began a life of endless pruning, cutting off the parts of our lives that were deemed unspiritual or seemed to hinder our mission to find college students and bring them to Bible study.
