Weekly Update and Review

First, here is what we have planned this week:

1. Thursday night bible study: Meet at 7PM in the singles building. We are studying Matthew 27 this week. It is in the meeting room - first room to the left when you turn left after the stairs.

2. Saturday at 7PM: Meet in the singles building for fellowship time!

On this past Sunday we talked about injustice. Some verses about the wicked living long that I mentioned but we didnt discuss were from Eccl 7:15, 8:14.

Also, remember that we decided to do something about injustice. (See connect with your world from this past Sunday's lesson). Be praying about an injustice/cause we can connect to in the future.

Time Management

We all hear about time management, but how can we manage time? We cannot. We only get 24 hours per day.. we cannot add to or take from it. We only get to choose what we do with that time... to some degree.

Look again at Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. These times are not options, but occurences in life. We do not get to choose when or how they happen. ".. a time to give birth and a time to die ..." (v.2.), for example.

How, then, should we respond to these variations (ups and downs) in life in terms of them not being fully in our control but in the hands of God?

Anyone care to post their thoughts??

Challenge Time

The challenge for this month is to read the lessons before coming to class. But, in addition, I would like everyone to read through the book of Ecclesiastes. Here is the schedule for that:

By January 10th (this week): Eccl. 1-3
By the 17th: Eccl 4-8
By the 24th: Eccl 8-10
By the 31st: Eccl 11-12

I will begin posting notes of interest/questions/etc again to this blog during the week. I hope to post at least 2 or 3 times per week. Please feel welcome to post comments on my blogs! Its for your use!
