We'll be meeting in EUC Ferguson tomorrow (Monday) night, Aug. 25 at 7:00. We hope to have our regular meeting room assigned to us after Labor Day.
Join us Aug. 18 for Fall Kick Off (please help at our table if you're able) and our first semester meeting that Monday night at 7:00 in EUC Sharpe.
Pray for RC Boosters this month. For opportunities to advance the ministry through speaking/writing/networking and to generate solid, sustainable support through prayer, finances and relationships. Pray for people's hearts to be prepared to grasp our mission and vision and to come on board as Boosters.
We will announce our meeting and location info for this Fall/2014 shortly. Just check back on this page for more info.
Please pray for RC College Prep as we finalize details to roll out this mentor training: administrative needs, funding, leadership, future mentors and students who will attend training, materials and ministry partnerships to help promote this crucial program.
OK, so the headline has some spin. However, on June 30, 2014, the United States Supreme Court did decide on the side of religious freedom in the well-known Hobby Lobby lawsuit. Ratio Christi was among those that signed an amicus brief ("friend of the court brief") submitted to the Supreme Court in support of Hobby Lobby in this case (see our previous blog). So, SCOTUS sided with those we supported. Obviously, not because of Ratio Christi, but we are glad to do whatever small part we can to champion religious freedom. Read more about the recent decision from RC's International Director here.
I just learned of an apologetics book for children ages 10 through teens written by our own Ramon Margallo who serves Ratio Christi in the Philippines. Margallo says the book is also a good beginning course in apologetics for adults. "The Manger, the Cross and the Empty Tomb." You can find the title here. Don't forget to order it through Amazon Smile and choose Ratio Christi as the benefactor of your purchases.
Join us for an 8 week study of different world religions! Our summer meetings are held each Thursday at 6:30 pm and everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served, and on some occasions, you can join us for an after meeting discussion at a local restaurant! So if you have questions on what other religions believe, plan to join us over the next 8 weeks to find out!
Starting this week the Marshall blog will begin updating daily instead of weekly! Tell your friends, and be sure to stop by and check it out!!
