Earth Day is this week! Celebrating the 40th anniversary this year, Earth Day has come a long way, far beyond from being that day when you thought about planting that tree you forgot to get.
Earth Day is about hope, stewardship, partnership, respect, inspiration and activism.
Blessed Earth is bringing together the global community on the eve of Earth Day this year to discuss how the church and Christians are part of God's plan to bring hope for creation. You won't want to miss this simulcast!
Dr. Matthew and Nancy Sleeth (we've had them speak together at Couple's Connect last year - and they live here in Wilmore as their home base) began Blessed Earth as an environmental non-profit to inspire congregations about creation care. Now that work has expanded as they educate, equip and re-vision individuals, schools, companies, congress and families all across the world.
So, this Wednesday, April 21st, join the community in McKenna Chapel. Doors open at 6:30pm, program starts at 7pm. President Tennent and Dr. Kalas (former interim President) will be hosting this FREE event!
(tree hugging and hippee granola optional)

In your story.
The year is drawing to a close, but with enough time to reflect and celebrate on the work God has done in our marriages. This evening is a special night dedicated to connecting with your spouse, one another and with God in light of these past few months. We serve a God who is faithful to complete the work He has started in us. We invite you to participate in an evening that will collectively (and just personally with your spouse) remember some of the that work He has started while also preparing ourselves for the work still to be completed.
Bring your favorite treat to share - We're treating one another to a delicious array of desserts!
(and don't forget your mug for drinks.)
Everyone is invited - invite your friends!

CHILDCARE IS FROM 6-8:30PM IN THE STUDENT CENTER.

Spouse & Family is beginning this semester with Couple's Connect - a gathering of husbands and wives who want to build into their marriage.
We'll focus on connecting to our spouse, to God and to one another. In an intentional but informal way, we'll share together our prayers, laughter, struggles and hope.
The night's theme is: "love, honor, cherish" where we'll talk the vows we made to one another on our wedding day. Marriage's journey is full of ups and downs and we'll hear from some courageous couples about what that creed has come to mean for them today. Husbands and wives will have the opportunity to share personally with one another over a delicious dessert too.
When: 6:30 - 8:30 pm Monday, February 8th
Where: Seminary Dining Commons in the Student Center
Childcare: 6:15 - 8:30pm at the Student Center (free)
B.Y.O.C. - Bring Your Own Cup for coffee, tea or hot chocolate
Students, Spouses, Staff, Community - all are welcome. Come even if your spouse can't!

The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting
So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins,
They will raise up the former devastations;
And they will repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations...."
There has been much to mourn since we last saw each other in December.
As January makes its descent into another month, we do not grieve as those who have no hope.
May the words of the prophet Isaiah (above) hover over your home, as true and rich as they are hovering over the desolation in Haiti and Kabul and...
We will begin our semester offerings (of service, friendship, formation) in February, and will make sure you know about them before-hand.
But meanwhile, let us work and sleep and LIVE with the prayers for the oppressed on our lips.
