Reply to "Here are a variety of Scope & Sequences from a variety of churches!"

I received this 6-year Rotation Model Bible story "scope and sequence" from Rev. Don Griggs, one of the most respected Presbyterian educators in the U.S. and a great fan of the Rotation Model. He used it at his church in Sacramento.

Don told me that he created this S & S for his church with Mary Batchelor's "Children's Bible in 365 Days" in front of him. The book is published by Lion Publishing. <>< Neil
