Class Update 9/12/10

Hi everybody!

I think Amanda & Jeff are still in Jamaica (lucky ducks!) so I thought I would send our update.

On Sunday, we began a discussion about the proposed mosque near Ground Zero. We agreed it really deserved another day of conversation, so we plan to continue this week. The discussion was based on a reading from the Thoughtful Christian, which I have attached if you would to read it before class.

We had 2 couples visiting, Chris & Ashley Gordon who just relocated from San Antonio where Chris was in school. They grew up in the DFW area and their folks live in the Metroplex. They are enjoying being back. Chris and Jennifer Ladd have just come to North Texas from Denver. So far, they think it is hot here! They moved here for Chris’ work.

Joys & Concerns-
-Slate May’s brain surgery is scheduled for September 29. He will stay in the hospital for several days, along with Heath & Courtney. They feel fortunate to be able to have the procedure done here in Dallas. Please pray for them and look for emails about how we can be helpful to them.
-Courtney’s friend, Tammy, has a son, Christian, with a form of MS. After a series of tests, they are close to concluding that he does not have Duchenne’s, one of the most devastating forms of MS. Pray that tests will rule out this diagnosis.
-Dean Brown, Price and Kim’s uncle, has been diagnosed with liver cancer and will begin treatment September 20. Please pray for him and his family’s strength during his illness.

Hope to see everyone Sunday!
