CFC THEME FOR 2008
Dear CFC Brethren:
We are pleased to announce our theme for 2008:
“Love one another as I have loved you.” John 13:34-35
The full of the Bible verse is: “I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
As we eagerly move on in our mission and face the challenges of the coming year, the Lord is telling us to love especially those who journey with us in our faith-walk.
This is a clear clarion call for all of us. In the face of our trials and difficulties, we are to respond as Jesus would, to love as He does. Love conquers all and forgives all.
The weekend retreats, the first of which is scheduled early in February 2008, will be called the “Disciples Weekend.” To be a disciple requires a great deal of loving. This we commit to do. As Christ’s disciples, we look to the next year with joy and with great anticipation not only to do His work, but also to love His people.
God bless us all.
