Coffee & Conversation

By | Adult Ministries | No Comments

Dear Fellow Coffee & Conversation Participants –

Last Sunday the class read and discussed Questions 1 through 5, about Chapter 9 in Max Lucado’s book Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World. The chapter is titled “Think About What You Think About.” The subtitle “Your problem is not your problem but the way you see it [is],” aptly conveys the thrust of the chapter.

Various members responded to how we dealt with difficulty controlling our thoughts or letting our minds wander, and what physical circumstances aggravated or assuaged these phenomena. Max challenged us to fill in the blanks: “My problem is not _______; it’s the ________ I let my mind focus on.” If you missed class, you might try filling in those blanks.

Question 5 refers to Philippians 4:8-9, where St. Paul states, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me — put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Max asks us to consider how true our anxiety is. He cautions, “If it hasn’t happened, don’t dwell on it.”

This Sunday, 10/13/19, we will start on page 189 with Question 6. Hope to see you there, normal time and place, between services, (starting at 9:45 a.m.) in St. Mark’s Room upstairs in the Leadership Center.

In Christ,
Peggy and Paul Foerster

San Antonio Youth Literacy – Reading Buddies Training

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Calling all those who wish to make an impact in the SA community and in children’s lives through reading!

San Antonio Youth Literacy (SAYL) is helping to move the needle on 3rd grade reading in San Antonio.  Research shows that young children who are not fluent readers by the end of 3rd grade may never catch up to their peers.  SAYL Reading Buddy Volunteers are matched with 2nd grade students in over seventy schools, and on average the students see an average improvement of four reading levels while also fostering their enjoyment of reading. We finished the past school year having 619 Reading Buddies, 8 which were from St. George Episcopal Church. The St. George Reading Buddies worked with 18 students for a total of 151 hours. On average, their students improved by 4 reading levels!

Visit sayl.org to find out more about the Reading Buddy Program and how you can get be part of the SAYL Tribe.
