I hope you’re all doing well, hopefully a little less stressed after last week’s discussion about Matthew 6. This week we will be back in John and Jon Townsend will be sharing with us. As always Praxis will be meeting this Wednesday at 7:30 pm in our summer spot, Trinity Church-1551 Reservoir Road, Redlands [Google Map].The room number is M102 but there will be signs so you can’t miss it. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
FACTOR[ing] – You choose time, date, and place!
FACTOR stands for favorites, aspirations, challenges, testimony, objectives, and requests. We’re finally kicking off this unique way to interact and grow as a family and I couldn’t be more excited. We announced FACTOR last week and will expand on it more, as well as start it this week! The FACTOR cards are ready, are you? You don’t want to miss this.
25/40 – All Summer Long!
25/40 is taken from Matthew 25:40 and will be our community guide all summer long. What we’re seeking to do is reach out to the homeless community around us by devoting time once a week to meet with them. This could involve sharing a meal, playing a game, or just having a conversation with the same person every week. We’ll be teaming up in groups to take on this task. I’m excited about the impact it could have on us, on the community, and most importantly on those who we’ll be interacting with. We are hosting sign ups again this week so if you haven’t already done so, sign up! This will be a super casual, non-threatening opportunity for those of you who haven’t done homeless ministry before to get your feet wet along with other students. Ultimately, we want to make this about bringing the gospel of Jesus in word and deed to those around us, and what better way to do that then personally engaging them?!
Praxis is a community of Christ followers longing to glorify God by loving God, loving people, sharing the gospel, and serving the world. We believe that as we faithfully pursue this mission, God can do far more than we can imagine to change the world by furthering His kingdom here on earth.
P.S. Here is a list of some things I’m into right now!
1. I know I’m a late bloomer to this, but I’m finally realizing it’s awesome. You’re telling me I can listen to the entire cd before I buy it, to be sure I really like it? Yes.
2. A great way to check out organizations before you donate your money to them! Here.
3. I don’t watch much tv, but I’ve been waiting a long time for this to come back. It’s not too late for you to join!
