TD Fri. – Invite Your Friends to “Can I Really Know God Personally?”

Image result for can i know god

Hey TD!

We will finally begin our year-long theme of Engage! Living Life in HD.  I’m excited to see how God will speak to us and how He will lead us to reach our friends with His love and His message of hope and truth. This Friday, we will focus on the question, “Can I Really Know God Personally?” It’s one of the most vital questions, if not THE most vital question, in life.

Please use this opportunity to invite your friends! Most of you don’t feel confident enough to engage in meaningful dialog about God and faith, and that’s ok. We understand. It’s scary. We can help. Just invite a friend or two to TD this week and we’ll help reach them with kindness, as well as with some answers of help and hope.  We won’t answer everything, but it will be a good start and will give you something to talk about.

I know it’s scary to invite friends, but I encourage you to have courage to do your part in reaching your friends with the good news that God wants to have a good and healthy relationship with them.  You cannot change their lives yourselves, but you can be part of the process. Inviting them will be a great start. God will honor your efforts.

Hope to see you on Friday! – Arthur

Hey TD!

There are still 2 days for you to do a quick survey for me and get In-n-Out for you and a friend! Don’t like In-n-Out? Ok, how about just doing it from the goodness of your heart in kindness towards me? 🙂

If you’re not ups to speed, here’s what’s going on:

I am taking a course that is exploring the origins, historicity, reliability, impact, etc. of the Bible.  I have an assignment due soon and I need your help. So, I’ve thought of a way that will accomplish a few things at once (what I call cross-pollinating).  Here’s what I am asking of you:

  • Please answer the 7 question survey below.
  • Please ask a friend outside of church to answer the same survey.
  • For those who complete the assignment by 9/24/16, I will give a $15 gift card for you to take that friend out to lunch/dinner at In-n-Out.
  • Just invite your friend to TD and let him/her know that I would personally like to thank him/her for helping me out, and I will give you guys the card!
  • If you can’t get a friend to answer the survey, I’d still appreciate it if you do.  Thanks!

Here’s the survey: Survey About the Bible

Thanks!

Hey TD,

I have a favor to ask.  I am taking a course that is exploring the origins, historicity, reliability, impact, etc. of the Bible.  I have an assignment due soon and I need your help.

Invite Your Friends to “Food For Thought”!

download

Hey TD!

It’s time to invite your friends to Food For Thought, an event designed to be enjoyed by both the mind and the palate!

Here’s an FAQ:

What will the evening be like?

It will be a casual, informal, yet an alive and engaging time of thought-provoking conversation, great Mexican food (made-to-order tacos!), and good fellowship. Arthur will bring up some issues that are common to everyone, not just Christians, and not just non-Christians.  Everyone.  Then we’ll try to make sense of those issues over good conversation, good food, and good fellowship in small conversation groups.

What does it cost?

Your price of admission is to bring a friend that you know would like to engage in conversations that count, and who is interested in questions of life.  That’s it.  If you don’t bring a friend, but would like to come anyway, you will be put on a waiting list, and we’ll let you know if there’s space for you. Priority goes to TD’ers with friends.

Do we need to rsvp?

Yes!  Please let your small group leader know how many of you will be coming by 5/11.

Event details?

Date and Time: Saturday, May 14, 2016; 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. (or whenever the last person leaves!)

Place: The Hsieh Residence

What can I do to help?

Three things:

  • Reach out to your friends to come.  We will do our part in preparing a great night to help you blessing your friends.  We need you to do your part in reaching out to them to come.
  • Pray.  Pray for our time together, yourself, your friends, and TD
  • Be who God meant you to be and do what God meant you to do.  As recording artist, Steven Curtis Chapman, reminds in his song, Meant to Be,

You were meant to be touching
The lives that you touch
And meant to be here
Making this world so much more
Than it would be without you in it

You were meant to be bringing
The gifts that you bring
And singing the songs
You’ve been given to sing

You are perfectly, wonderfully,
Beautifully meant to be
You were meant to be
