Ashes on the Quad

9 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday

@ the Stallions

Ash Wednesday Service

5:30 p.m., Feb. 18

@ Christ Chapel

 

Marshall & Jaime were out on the Quad on Monday, Feb. 9, to offer an alternative to Brother Jed's message of judgment and hate. Afterward, Marshall spoke to Brother Jed, who later mentioned the conversation on his blog. His comment:

"The pastor of Christ’s Chapel, which is the Episcopalian ministry, held up a sign saying that there were alternative views of Jesus. He was OK; I actually respect him for coming out for the afternoon and speaking with students. That is more than most campus area ministers will do. Later, I spoke with his student assistant.  He said, 'Your ministry is an opportunity.'"

And this is what Marshall meant: "His being on our campus provides the campus ministries a prime opportunity to minister to the questioning on our campus and hopefully and prayerfully bring them to know Christ."

NEW WORSHIP TIME ON SUNDAYS BEGINNING FEBRUARY 22 at 5:30

Sometimes a change is necessary, and increasingly we are discovering that 7:00 is not the best time for students. So, we are making a change. Please join us on Sunday evenings at 5:30 starting February 22. We'll follow worship with a Barbeque Showdown. We'll have samples of two or three meats from the five local barbeque joints and a blind judging, then share a meal together.


Stay after worship for the Barbecue Showdown!

THE UNKNOWN

Minnie Louis Haskins was a respected scholar who taught social sciences at the London School of Economics from 1919 to 1944. She could also write a poem like nobody's business. One of hers became famous shortly after the start of World War II, when King George VI quoted it in his Christmas radio broadcast. Her words were balm for a nation undergoing the trauma of war again, just 21 years after "The War to End All Wars" claimed the lives of over 888,000 soldiers of the British empire. I reprint a few lines below, not because in any way, shape, or form is being a student at Texas State like being at war. The bit about going into the unknown, however - that would be just about every student's life, especially in the first week of classes. So enjoy . . .

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown." And he replied: "Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way." So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.

-- Pastor Jaime
