Wed lunch/prayer mtg W2300 and other announcements

Dear PHCF,

"Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." (John 6:68) May these words spoken by Simon Peter be your heartbeat this week - may your words, thoughts, heart attitudes, and actions all stem from Him as your firm foundation.

For our meeting this week (12:15pm in Room W2300), we will have a time of extended prayer for our school, campus, city, and nation - as well as individual prayer requests. For those of you finishing your capstones, theses, or Master's essays this week, we pray for your diligence all for his glory!

(Side note: for those of you who identify as Reformed, or who like John Piper/Tim Keller/Kevin DeYoung/etc, the livestream of the Gospel Coalition's annual conference is available here: - thru Wednesday!)
