Gathering licenses, locations, and locking down dates as we move toward October and Reel Life.  The Bible is filled with stories of every day people loved, broken, and redeemed.  Many of today's stories are told through film and we'll explore both positive and not so positive examples.
Each week we'll show 25 minutes of the film followed by 25 minutes of discussion.

November - Black Panther
December - The Greatest Showman
January - The Hate U Give

Harry Potter and the Sacred Text will continue as well.

Uhhhhh, so where have you been Jeanne?  Last fall, the dream of a home to renovate in order to give a portion of the profit to Mentor2Youth became a dream realized.  This week, they finish the siding, laying floors in the bathroom and kitchen, hang cupboards, and install new appliances.
In the meantime all of the rooms... ALL of them... need to be painted. While I love to paint, it's incredibly time-consuming; and with the deadline fast approaching, the work needs to be done. Volunteers are always welcome as the garage must be painted too.  It is an outdoor job so quite well ventilated!  I'm grateful for this opportunity and when weariness kicks in, I picture Traydeon and the children like him who deserve the resources for an optimal education.  Reviewing the pictures taken at the beginning of it all bring to mind this verse, and like Christ, I press forward in the name of mercy, justice, and love.  
"So then, if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. The old things have gone away, and look, new things have arrived!"
