This Saturday will be a lot buzzier than normal at the cafe.
At 9 am... a specially-called meeting for compassion-focused Christian churches/ministries will meet to discuss common matters... and will include ministries such as FHL International, Transform Indiana, Kairos Prison Ministries, Signs of Christ, CBMC, Front Porch Alliance. If you care greatly about our communities in the name of Christ... you'd be very welcome and blessed at this meeting.
At 10am... our special training topic this month is... "Twitter 'N Prayer" -- the point is, how do we effectively use this great new tool to connect & communicate for prayer purposes. And hey, if it works well for 'prayer', it will then also be effective for other purposes that accelerate the (whole) Great Commission... like 'care', 'share' and 'dare'. So come be with us as we brainstorm & train on the big screen.
Nettie Lester is the newest bud on the 'Ask Anything Saturday' BEGATS TREE. Nettie is a long-time radio voice in the urban community, and now is sprouting new wings on the internet. *smile*
[God bless you, Nettie. Thank you for letting your light be seen and heard now at the speed of Light.]
Here's a rare photo of Nettie we found in our UBcafe photostream. [You know these radio-types... never wanting to be 'seen' in public. *wink*]
