Coffee & Conversation Class Update

By | Adult Ministries | No Comments

Last Sunday the class started out to read the three Bible verses referred to in Question 6 of the questions for Chapter 1 in Max Lucado’s book “Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World.” In the last bullet of that question, Max asks, “What scares you about getting older?” He asks us to consider how these three passages relate to our today’s society:

  1. Proverbs 16:3, “Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness.”
  2. Isaiah 46:4. “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”
  3. Job 12:12. “Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does long life bring understanding?”

One of the more interesting points made was the difference between the way the class’s Hispanic non-Hispanic members’ families view aging. The Hispanics tend to have stronger family ties that regard the older members as matriarchs and patriarchs, rather than in “other” ways.

Much time at the beginning of the class was devoted to spontaneous accounts of various members’ answered prayers. One member for whom the Prayer Team had prayed was hospitalized to diagnose an excruciatingly painful abdominal mass. The exam two days later showed the mass had “disappeared!” Another member reported that a friend who the class had been praying for has come back to Christ, and also how long-term health problems affecting ability to work were finally starting to be resolved.

Your participation in C&C Class is a way to help fulfill Fr. Ram’s calling in last Sunday’s service to do God’s work by “fishing,” as Jesus had charged his disciples. C&C is a “safe place” where one can share personal stories of God’s work in our lives. Hope you can join us next Sunday, 2/17/19 (normal time and place, between services starting at 9:45 in St. Mark’s Room, second floor in the Learning Center), for another round of stimulating “conversations.”

In Christ,
Peggy and Paul Foerster
