2/4 – This Week (Mercedes Marathon Week)

We need your help. This Sunday is the Mercedes Marathon through downtown Birmingham, and it’s our opportunity to love our neighbor and be a part of our community. The marathon comes down 11th Avenue (in front of Trinity Commons and St. Andrew’s); the last several years we’ve been out on the street giving gummi bears and Gatorade to those running, as well as cheering them on. The runners are very grateful for the help and support, and we need your help and support to make it happen.

If you’re willing to join us to provide help to the runners then come join us at Trinity Commons (1170 11th Ave S) before 7am this Sunday, February 10.  The runners come shortly after that; we’ll have bagels and coffee for you for breakfast. It’s a fun time (even if an early morning) and you’ll be doing good work for good friends in one of the events that make Birmingham a special place to be.  We need your help so I hope to see you there.

Tuesday–Pasta Night at 6pm will be Shells with Ricotta, Goat Cheese, and Roasted Red Pepper.  It’s a fun and delicious night so I hope you’re able to there.

On Campus This Week

Tuesday we’re finally back at Birmingham-Southern, after what seemed like a very long break. I’ll be hanging around in the front of the Caf starting around 9 am and I hope you’ll come by to say hey, tell me about your break, and what you’re looking forward to this semester. Then join us in Yeilding Chapel at 11:45 am for our short Eucharist, which is always a great way to spend some time with God in prayer and fellowship. After that I’ll be hanging around eating in the Caf; you’re always welcome to come join me.

Wednesday I’ll be back on campus at Samford, hanging out in the University Center near the O Henry’s. Come by and say hey, join me for coffee and a chat, and let’s talk about whatever you want to talk about.  Then join us in Reid Chapel at Noon for our short Eucharist.  I’ll be eating lunch in the Caf after that and you’re always welcome to join me.

Thursday I’ll be back on campus, hanging out in the Hill Center near the doors to Univ Blvd. Come by and say hey, join me for coffee, lunch, and/or a chat, and let’s talk about whatever you want to talk about.

Vocare 19 at Camp McDowell

Finally, Vocare 19 is coming up.  This is a spiritual retreat at Camp McDowell that focuses on issues that college students and young adults wrestle with.  It’s free and a great time to be at Camp, meet old friends, make some new ones, and explore questions of belonging and the future.
