Housing opportunities, CCIH conference in July, GMHC conference in Nov

Dear PHCF,

Deut 32:9-12 - the final Song of Moses after God commissions Joshua to lead the people of Israel - says this:

9 the Lord's portion is his people,
Jacob his allotted heritage.
10 “He found him in a desert land,
and in the howling waste of the wilderness;
he encircled him, he cared for him,
he kept him as the apple of his eye.
11 Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
that flutters over its young,
spreading out its wings, catching them,
bearing them on its pinions,
12 the Lord alone guided him,
no foreign god was with him."

May you, too, rest in the knowledge and hope that the Lord is guiding you, catching you, present with you - even (and especially) when you find yourself in a desert land or a new/unknown place. May you grow in faith as you believe that your God calls you the apple of his eye, his dearly beloved. Cling to him, and to him alone, for his words are true and unfailing. May your thoughts, words, and deeds bring him glory this week!

We aren't meeting formally this Wed, but Room W2033 in the SPH is reserved for us (noon-1:30pm), so feel free to make use of that space for prayer/fellowship! (There's also a prayer room in the basement by the mail room.)

16 By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. 17 But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? 18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18
