Ebola grand rounds today, and other announcements

Dear PHCF,

At the end of Deuteronomy, as Moses gives final instructions to the Israelites before they enter the Promised Land, he exhorts them: Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, love the Lord your God, obey him, and remain faithful to Him. For he is your life... (Deut 30:19-20).

It is midterm season (and transition season for many of us! as folks look forward to new jobs or preparing thesis proposals and many unknowns), and so we pray for your faith in His faithfulness to be strengthened today - because God is provider, healer, restorer, sustainer, king, and friend. May you find him to be more than enough today. A song for those of you who are ministered to by music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4S8ne-xU0E

Please also pray for leadership transitions (if you're around this summer/next year and interested in leadership, please contact Teresa/Shawn) and for new students as they plan for their move to Baltimore/Hopkins.

Finally, Shawn and Teresa are not on campus tomorrow noon, so we won't have a structured PHCF lunch meeting this week, but please feel free to use room W2300 (Wed 12-1:30pm) as a place of prayer or meeting since it's already reserved for us!

Love and blessings,
Teresa

For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone. (Eph 2:18-20)
