Prepare Ye The Way!

For the Love of the Spirit

Announcements

Greetings!

Announcements that are non-blog related are something that I normally would be including on the website “Love of the Spirit,” but, sadly, the website is hung in limbo.  Until such time as that dream and prayer becomes a reality, I will use this blog to forward information.  Thank you for your patience.

As always I urge my readers to subscribe to the blog by whatever means they find available.  One such method can be found in the link provided in the upper right corner of this page.  ALSO, please feel free to comment in the text box provided for every article.  Comments, thoughts, feedback, etc. are ALWAYS welcome!

12 Step Bible Study

Starting this Tuesday and continuing every Tuesday for the rest of 2011 and into 2012, members of New Beginnings (myself included) will be leading and sponsoring a “12 Step Bible Study” for homeless men.  New Beginnings will be traveling to rotating PACEM sites to make contact with the men who wish to participate in the program.  During the cold winter months, a local organization called PACEM provides housing and a hot meal for homeless men and women.  See the next section for more on PACEM.

The 12 Step Bible Study is similar to any other 12 step recovery program.  Based on the 12 Steps of Alcohol Anonymous, each week one step will be discussed.  Strong emphasis is placed on scripture.

PACEM

The following is a cut and paste from the PACEM website “About” page.  Besides the link provided here you may find a link for them in the “Blog Roll” in the right sidebar.

People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry (PACEM) is an interfaith collaboration of congregations and community partners in Charlottesville. Our passion is to help the homeless find shelter at night, especially during the cold winter months.

PACEM opened its doors November 15, 2004, and immediately began serving some of our neediest neighbors. Our program is modeled on the long running and highly successful CARITAS program in Richmond, Virginia, and NEST program in Norfolk, Virginia.

PACEM operates as a shelter of last resort;  through PACEM, local congregations take turns hosting men and women who have nowhere else to sleep at night.  Meals are included, and some sites provide access to showers and laundry.

New Links

I have added new links in the right sidebar.  I will continue to search and read websites that provide opportunities for inspiration and growth in faith in our Father and his Son, through the blessings of his Holy Spirit.
