Hello! (Alex here.)
This Sunday night’s Dark Room Faith video asks: What’s the point of human suffering, and why would a loving God allow it?
The video opens with the following disclaimer:
“This Episode contains themes of self-harm, abuse and depression which may be disturbing to some audiences. If you or your students are experiencing a mental health crisis, please contact a mental health professional.”
I am thankful for how thoughtfully you high schoolers have engaged with the previous videos and subsequent discussions, and imagine this Sunday will be even better!
Middle School Youth Group is 6.30-8.30pm on Friday
High School Youth Group is 6.00-8.30pm on Sunday
I am always ‘happy’ to toast a new friend to CAYG with a shot of hot sauce!
1. Fri-day Pie-day for Middle Schoolers
In other news, we are looking forward to repeating the success of last Friday’s ‘Pie on the Fri’ or Fri-day Pie-day, but this time Jane is making a Key Lime Pie, as requested. RSVP if you plan to join us at 849 Jancey from 4-5.30pm, and need a ride to Middle School CAYG after.
2. NO CAYG the weekend of Thanksgiving
We have five more weekends of CAYG before Thanksgiving (including this weekend), and then we will have a weekend off. So to be clear:
NO CAYG on Friday November 25th (when I will be feeling conflicted, as England plays the USA in the FIFA World Cup).
NO CAYG on Sunday November 27th.
3. Wreath Sales
Christmas Wreaths can now be ordered online and all orders need to be made by Sunday December 4th. Wreaths will be delivered and you can collect them from Ascension on Sunday December 11.
4. CAYG in December
December sees two more weekends of CAYG (December 2/4, and 9/11) before our end of year Christmas Parties at our home on Friday December 16 (Middle Schoolers) and Sunday December 18 (High Schoolers). More info to follow.
