Man….your reflection is that of your Father!

We’re back at it this Friday, hitting the second chapter of our current study, The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses.

This week’s lesson focuses on God creating Man AND Woman in His own image.

What does that mean?  Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered….”What does God really look like….?”

And with that creation, God commissions us to have dominion over Eden.

Read Chapter 2 of the book then look over the questions for the same chapter in the Study Guide.

We’ll gather on Friday at 7:30 am, ready to roll at 7:45 am


Not Just Good….but VERY Good!

Welcome to a new study at Friday Morning Men’s Fellowship (FMMF) – Charlotte!  We’ve picked the book, The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses by Chris Bruno.  This week, we’ll start in Chapter 1 with the “Creation” story.  Our first of 16 verses is Genesis 1:16 which reads:

“And behold… was very good.”  GEN 1:16

Your homework this week is to read Chapter 1 and then go through the questions for that same chapter in the study guide.  Please read Psalm 104 and Genesis 1:1-23 to supplement the chapter reading.

We are reminded this week that everything was made by God….and everything He made is good.  Ponder that for a minute or two.  We can all come up with lists of everything that is bad in this world.  Here’s mine for starters:

  • Raw tomotoes
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Snakes
  • Early morning alarm clocks
  • ISIS
  • Cancer
  • Debt
  • Grudges
  • Paralysis
  • Prejudices

How does my list compare to yours?

Let’s discuss this week.

See you on Friday at the Cornwell Center.  Gather at 7:30 am in the front parlor.  I’ll lead this week starting at 7:45 am.


Be Courageous…..

Final week of our powerful series, The Resolution for Men.  This week’s final assignment is Session 8 of the study guide, and chapters 14-15 of the main book.  Our focus this week is simply putting all the pieces together, understanding the “why and how” from previous seven sessions, and a call to action for us.

As I was skimming the pages last night, one of the more powerful stories is the opening one in the study guide.  A grieving son plays a voice message on his cell phone during a eulogy that his father had left him earlier.  We’re unclear as to how many days, weeks or even months before his father’s death the message occurred.  Time really doesn’t matter.  I believe the point of the story is that living out many of the principles we’ve leaned the last several weeks during this study should not be time-stamped.

Each of us has taken something or somethings from this study.  This Friday, as we wrap up, please come prepared to tell our group what you will take with you in the days ahead.  Will we be courageous enough to take the lessons learned on in our daily lives?

And in case you missed the big announcement last week, we’ve selected the book and topic of our next study.  Details on how to prepare for what’s coming up are in last week’s reminder blog post.  As always, a new study is a great time to invite someone you know to join our group.  I encourage you to consider inviting someone!

See you this Friday….gather at 7:30 am, ready to go at 7:45 am.  Meet in the front parlor of the Cornwell Center.
