Hello everyone!

Personally, today has been a long and stressful day - psets, office hours, review sessions, work, class, lots of things! And I'm sure many of you guys have had similarly busy days if not can foresee some in the near future. So I wanted to encourage you all to just take a step back and breathe. To slowly lower the breakneck speed you've been running at and simply be for a second...and then read this psalm ^^ I hope you guys can take a minute to read these few verses and remember who the God we serve is and what we truly should be seeking:

"The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me
    to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord."

- Psalm 27:1-6 

Men's Overnight
Friday, February 22 (5:30pm) - Saturday, February 23 (12:00pm)

Calling all men! On the evening of Friday, February 22, we'll join the brothers at Teen Challenge, an addiction recovery ministry in New Haven, for an evening chapel service and fellowship time. Afterward, we'll head off-campus for more conversation, games, and hanging out as we consider together the role of God's refining love in our lives and friendships, even through seasons of adversity. We'll hear from one another and from Scripture, looking at the lives of Daniel and his friends. We're excited for the time together! Sign up here ASAP. 
Thursday, February 21 | Dwight Common Room | 8pm

This semester, we've been talking a lot about God's wonderful love for us and the world. But just as it can be hard to truly understand what it means that God loves us, we also have to understand what it means that God is just. If God is love, how can he also be just? What does the justice of God really mean? 

Over the next two weeks, we'll be asking these questions and more in a series we're calling "Asking for a Friend." Come ready to ask hard questions together as a community, for us and for our friends!
