“Soaking In The Son”

Please join us for our quarterly fp Women’s Group Gathering on Friday, June 1 @ 6:30 p.m. in Satellite 1 to “Soak In The Son”!

As summer draws near it makes me giddy to think about sitting by the pool or on the beach and reading a book, just relaxing soaking in the sun. We all have been made aware of how harmful the sun can be to our skin, but, honestly, there isn’t much that makes me feel better mentally.

Over the last few years we have been hearing more and more about how unhealthy the sun is for us, but then we have also been hearing about how the majority of people are suffering from vitamin D deficiency. As we learn more about vitamin D, we learn that the best way to get it is through soaking in the sun for 15-20 minutes a day. Vitamin D is essential for our health. Since healthy levels of vitamin D protect and promote so many of your body’s functions, a deficiency may mean your body lacks the tools it needs to keep you in optimal health.

Just like the body requires the sun to keep in good health, each of us needs to soak in the Son in order to remain spiritually healthy. Essentially when we soak in the Son, we are in a place of rest where we are waiting on the Son to pour out His Spirit onto us. Soaking is more than a five minute dip. Soaking is allowing ourselves to become saturated and full. By soaking in the Son, we are becoming full of what we are soaking in – the Son’s presence.

When we soak in His presence, we become more like Him. At our next fp Women’s Group Gathering, we will hear from three different women. Each woman will show us, through sharing, that in every circumstance we can continue to “Soak In The Son”. Like Vitamin D – “Soaking In The Son” keeps us healthy. Make plans now to join us on June 1.

At fp Women’s Group Gatherings you will find a warm, friendly, and fun atmosphere providing an opportunity for you to connect, develop friendships, grow in Christ, and be equipped for service. We will have sign-ups for our Women’s Groups and sign ups to serve at the Gathering. It will also be an outreach to other women in the community that need Christ or Christian fellowship.

• Our Theme Verse is “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
• We will not do the elective classes at this Gathering
• Door prizes will be awarded

New Men’s Group on Monday Nights, 7:00pm at the Pellissippi Campus

“Doing the Right Thing”, a new Six Week DVD/Facilitated Men’s Group lead by Bob Poteat starts Monday 5/7 @ 7pm

How can we, as a society, do what’s right even in the face of powerful temptations and incentives to do what’s wrong?

Join hosts Brit Hume, Chuck Colson, Dr. Robert George and a distinguished panel as they undertake a six part exploration of Ethics before a live student audience in Princeton, NJ. The panel, students and interviewed guests will examine and discuss these questions over six thirty minute sessions:

• How did we get into this mess?
• Is there truth, a moral law we can all know?
• If we know what is right, can we do it?
• What does it mean to be human?
• Ethics in the Market Place
• Ethics in Public Life

“A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon the world” – Albert Camus

Doing the Right Thing explores the ethical and moral breakdown that is hitting culture from all sides. Through panel discussions, interviews, and live student questions it raises ethical issues in a non-condemning but challenging way, stimulating thought, discussion, and action. The DVD sessions and accompanying participant’s guide encourage viewers to examine themselves and how ethical and character issues relate to their lives at home, school, and the workplace. As a result of this discussion and self-examination, participants will exhort each other and promote an ethic of virtue in their spheres of influence and in the culture at large.

Not a day passes without another shocking news story that makes us wonder what kind of culture the next generation will inherit. The sheer greed involved in the sub-prime banking crisis and Bernie Madoff’s theft of billions of investor dollars are just two examples in our own country. How did we get here?

On the international scene, the more obvious indicators chill and dismay us: children being used in the international sex trade, reports of genocide and obvious repression in Africa, the ongoing regimens and routines of hatred in the Middle East, religious oppression, wars and rumors of wars.

At the family level the story is more familiar but no less tragic. Divorce, with all its attendant havoc, continues at high rates, including among religious families. Addictions of all kinds are flourishing, especially among the young. Violence and cheating have infected the schools on a surprising scale, and alarming reports of teachers preying sexually on their students are coming to the fore.

Individually and corporately, the evidence continues to mount of a serious crisis of character. What used to be a nagging suspicion is now revealed daily: something is terribly amiss in our society.
We must get on the playing field and winsomely retake the high moral ground–before it’s too late.
The time is right for a bold movement to help rediscover Natural Law and to apply it in their personal and professional lives. Time is of the essence if we are to help turn our culture around and you can be a vital part of it in your spheres of influence.
