TGIF | “Planks, Specks, and Stones” this December

TGIF 12.5

Practically speaking, what does it look like to be Christ in my workplace? How do we live for God in an ungodly world? How does humility fit into a culture that values individualism and competition? Let’s talk about it!

Bring your lunch, and we’ll bring the speakers (beverages provided too)! Together, we will examine what Scripture has to say about real life issues that affect our faith, family and work.

NOVEMBER TOPIC:
Planks, Specks, and Stones: Does the Bible Contradict the Current View of Judgment?
 with Buddy Childress

When: Friday, December 5 | 12-1 PM
Where: Needle’s Eye Office | 104 Berrington Ct., Richmond 23221

RightNow Media | Staff Pick for November!

Right Now Pick of the Month11.1.14
Needle’s Eye is always looking for ways to serve and equip you as you live out your faith throughout the week. We’re excited to share our favorite study from RightNow Media for the month of November: The Prodigal God by Tim Keller!

The Prodigal God is a revelation of the very heart of the gospel: God’s radical love for sinners of every kind. Taking you and your small group or church beyond the traditional focus on the wayward younger son, Dr. Keller helps you glean insights from each of the characters in Jesus’ parable: the irreligious younger son, the moralistic elder son, and the Father who lavishes his love on both.

comesitstayBOOK: Come, Sit, Stay

In Come, Sit, Stay, best-selling author Ellen Vaughn encourages those who are emotionally drained, burdened, or spiritually hungry to come and rediscover authentic rest in Christ’s presence. Embedded within Jesus’ call to “Come to Me” is a progression of verbs that actually lead to the result of rest: wonderful, real rest for your soul.

  • Come and experience the peace of a secure relationship with Him, right in the midst of chaos or crisis.
  • Sit with Christ and know Him in ever deeper dimensions of your soul.
  • Stay and delight in a relationship that is always faithful, always present.

Inspiring stories, scriptures, and anecdotes, woven with a light touch, offer penetrating insight and thoughtful consideration of life’s big questions. Vaughn’s devotional wisdom speaks directly to the heart and nourishes the soul. Come, Sit, Stay draws you into a deeper conversation with God, with a heartfelt and compelling invitation to come and rest in a richer, simpler spiritual life in Christ.

xiansBOOK: When Christians Get It Wrong

A growing number of people today have opted out of Christianity and the church because they see condemning attitudes and actions coming from those who claim to be Christian. Outsiders are increasingly seeing Christians as people who judge others, condemn people of different faiths, and more.

Adam Hamilton believes that following Jesus is much more about open doors than it is with locked gateways however. In this book, Adam will show you a different way of understanding the critical issues that are keeping people from Christianity, and help you develop strategies for being a compassionate, yet committed voice for the Gospel of Christ!

When: Wednesday, October 29, 6-8 PM
Where: The home of Marcia Fryer
Cost: Purchase your own book (When Christians Get It Wrong by Adam Hamilton)
