Wed 12:15 W2033 guest speaker (Dr. Edward), Thurs noon John Bible study, and more!

Dear Public Health Christian Fellowship,
In one of his great I AM statements, Jesus preached to the people, "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't be stumbling through the darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life." (John 8:12) Brothers and sisters in the School of Public Health, will you trust in the Lord to be the light that leads to life, following Jesus with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength? Will you trust him to set your feet on the solid rock, leading you in a path that may seem twisty turny in the midst of it but when you look back you can say that truly he has made your paths straight (Prov 3:6)?
This week's events in the SPH: Wednesday 12:15pm,Room W2033: join us for our first meeting of second term! PHCF's dear faculty adviser Anbrasi Edward (Department of International Health - Health Systems) will share about the leading of the Holy Spirit, and we will have time for Q&A and sharing and prayer. Thursday …

Dear Public Health Christian Fellowship,
Just wanted to share Paul's mid-letter prayer for the church in Ephesus this morning, as many of us wrestle through finals or projects or papers or deadlines of various sorts - For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations…

Tues Bible study, Wed guest speaker (Dr. Ajit Isaac), Fall hiking, Missions conference

Dear Public Health Christian Fellowship,
When David was in the wilderness of Judah, he wrote: My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me (Ps 63:8). In the midst of turmoil - in political elections (in the US and other countries), in our own wrestling over work and school and projects and deadlines, in uncertainty or unsettledness - we pray that we too hold onto the Lord; for he is the true vine and we are the branches (Jn 15:5). May we taste his goodness - and may it both satisfy us and make us thirsty for more (A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God).
This week's events: Tuesday at noon in Room W2207, join Travis and others for Bible Study in the Book of John.Wednesday at 12:15 in Room W2033, Dr. Ajit Isaac (MPH '94) will share about being ambassadors for Christ.

Wed lunch mtg W2033, Apple picking, Missions conference, Thanksgiving celebration

Dear Public Health Christian Fellowship,
Paul writes to the church in Ephesus, Sing and make melody in your heart to the Lord (Eph 5:19). Dear ones, praying that today you sing unto the Lord a new song - revealing your heart's song as Christ overflows in you into your thoughts, attitudes, words, and deeds. May your studies and work be a pleasing act of worship today.
This Wednesday at 12:15 in W2033, we will do a special song and testimony sharing and prayer time. Feel free to bring a song that has touched you recently, or a story of how God has worked (provided, taught, challenged, comforted) you recently.

Wed lunch mtg W2033 (guest speaker Dr. Mosley), Global Missions Health Conference (Louisville KY, Nov 8-10)

Dear Public Health Christian Fellowship,
In Paul's famous description of love in 1 Cor 13, he writes: For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known (1 Cor 13:12) Praying that in the midst of midterms this week and other projects/work/events, the Lord walks closely with you as you remember to turn and seek his face, and that you do all your things-to-do for the sake of his glory. And sharing a song for meditation.
This Wednesday at 12:15pm in room W2033, please join us for our weekly gathering. Our guest speaker, Dr. Henry Mosley, will speak about "Reflections on following God's leadership" - it will be a sweet time of sharing, Q&A, and prayer. For those of you interested, Dr. Mosley published a recent article on family planning. (No Tuesday Bible study in the Book of John today!!!)
