Wed lunch meeting 12:15pm W2033, social next week, and other announcements

Dear PHCF,

In 2 Cor 2:14, Paul writes: but thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. What a truth this is: that we follow Jesus, who has already and will triumph (over sin, death, all brokenness). And he doesn't just lead us occasionally but always. Praying that as we start a new school year (welcome to all our new students! ^_^), we may treasure Him - and that we may also spread the sweet aroma of knowing him wherever we go.

We pray also for those along the Texas coast affected by Hurricane Harvey; for God's provision and protection - for the rescuers, healthcare workers, utility repair folks, people whose homes/belongings are gone, people in physical danger. Even in tragedy, may people come to know the Lord as the true and living God who shut in the sea... and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors, and said, "Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed." (Job 38:8,10-11).

Tomorrow, we will meet in Room W2033 in the SPH at 12:15pm -- to celebrate the first PHCF meeting of AY2017-18, we're having an ice cream social meet-and-greet. New and current students invited - and staff/faculty, too! We will also discuss how we can more intentionally put the "public health" into PHCF, and welcome your input.

You are welcome to join us at any/all of our recurring gatherings:
- Lunch meetings on Wednesdays at 12:15pm in Room W2033 (contact PHCF)
- Small group on Mondays at 7:30pm in the 929 Apartments (contact Esther)
- Writing Accountability Group (i.e. study group) on Fridays at 4pm (contact Teresa)
