Wed lunch mtg in Hampton House cafe! and upcoming conferences

Dear PHCF,

One of the last "good" kings of Judah was described as good and right and faithful - for everything he did, seeking his God, he did with all his heart, and prospered (2 Chron 31:20-21). Hezekiah had cleansed/reconsecrated the temple, restored right worship, reinstated Passover, broken down the high places, and much more - a driven, and by any measure quite successful, king. But the blessing poured out on him came not because of any specific action he had done, though what he did was good!, but because he sought the Lord with all his heart. This is our prayer for you today: may you, too, seek God with all your heart (mind, soul, and strength) - giving glory to God in all the work he has set before you, whether big or small, whether exciting or tedious. May you practice being faithful in the little things, and rest in his abundant grace.

A final Scripture-prayer: May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord. (Ps 104:34)

We will meet tomorrow (Wednesday) at lunchtime (12:15pm) in Hampton House cafe (first floor) - come join us for fellowship and prayer! Specifically, we will plan and pray over the upcoming academic year and our new and continuing students (and staff and faculty). More announcements below!
