Thought for Thursday - January 22

One of the great blessings in my life is a pastor peer group that I meet with once a month. We gather to pray for one another, learn from each other, and just as importantly, to enjoy one another’s presence. That last part is the most important part. Everyone needs friends who love them just because.

Our desperate need for unconditional love has been reaffirmed by a book we've been reading together by Henri Nouwen entitled, In the Name of Jesus. In classic Nouwen style, the book makes the case that Christian leadership is not primarily about leading, but rather, being led. If we are Christian leaders, the leadership we most need to be concerned about is Christ’s leadership in our own lives and not our influence in the lives of others.

Grief Share - February 1

A new Grief Share group is beginning soon.

Grief Share is a special weekly seminar and support group for people who are grieving the death of someone close to them. It consists of 13 sessions and will begin February 1, 2015.

If you have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, please join us Sunday evenings, 5pm - 7pm, in Room 110. The cost is $10 per person and the group will be limited to 20 participants. To sign up, please call or come by the church office.

Paint and Praise - February 24 (Feb 23 is FULL, new date now available)

Ladies, if you have always wanted to paint and you love to laugh, this will be the perfect event for you. Paint and Praise is coming to Southland Baptist Church February 24th, 6:30-9:00pm. Mark you calendars and reserve your spot. Cost is $35 and seating is limited!

It will be a great evening of FUN, FELLOWSHIP and PAINTING!!! (Even if you can't paint, you will leave with a beautiful 16x20 work of art!! We promise!) Bring snacks and soft drinks to share. Bottled water and all painting supplies will be provided.

Centrifuge Youth Camp - July 13-18, 2015

What is 2015 Centrifuge?
Centrifuge is for students completing 6th-12th grade. It is an exciting camp at beautiful Glorieta, New Mexico where students can relax, engage in powerful worship every morning and evening, and experience small group Bible study and team-building recreation led by highly trained FUGE staff-ers.

Who is speaking and who is leading worship for the week?
Great question! Matt Lawson will be speaking, and the Robbie Seay Band will be leading worship. This will be a great week to grow closer to God, to make new friends, and to continue to build friendships with other students at Southland.

Advent 2014 - Christmas Day

Mary's Baby
Shaemas O'Sheel (1886-1954)

Joseph, mild and noble, bent above the straw:
A pale girl, a frail girl, suffering he saw;
"O my Love, my Mary, my bride, I pity thee!"
"Nay, Dear," said Mary, "all is well with me!"
"Baby, my baby, O my babe," she sang.
Suddenly the golden night all with music rang.
Angels leading shepherds, shepherds leading sheep:
The silence of worship broke the mother's sleep.
All the meek and lowly of all the world were there;
Smiling, she showed them that her Child was fair,
"Baby, my baby," kissing Him she said.
Suddenly a flaming star through the heavens sped.
Three old men and weary knelt them side by side,
The world's wealth forswearing, majesty and pride;
Worldly might and wisdom before the Babe bent low:
Weeping, maid Mary said, "I love Him so!"
"Baby, my baby," and the Baby slept.
Suddenly on Calvary all the olives wept.
