ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BEING BAPTIZED OR LEARNING MORE ABOUT IT? DO YOU WANT TO EXPLORE CONFIRMATION OR LOOK AT IT AGAIN?

If so, the process you would engage in is called catechesis. A time of study and reflection with Pastor Jaime would begin on February 18th at 7:00 and end with baptism (and possibly confirmation, depending on several factors) on Easter Sunday, April 5th. If you are interested, meet Pastor Jaime on Monday, February 9th at 9:00 p.m. by the horses statue on the Quad. If it rains, he will be under the entry porch roof of Derrick. If you cannot meet at that time, but are interested in catechesis, send an e-mail to him to let him know, and when it would be good for you to meet.
NEW WORSHIP TIME ON SUNDAYS BEGINNING FEBRUARY 22 at 5:30

Sometimes a change is necessary, and increasingly we are discovering that 7:00 is not the best time for students. So, we are making a change. Please join us on Sunday evenings at 5:30 starting February 22. We'll follow worship with a Barbeque Showdown. We'll have samples of two or three meats from the five local barbeque joints and a blind judging, then share a meal together.

THE UNKNOWN

Minnie Louis Haskins was a respected scholar who taught social sciences at the London School of Economics from 1919 to 1944. She could also write a poem like nobody's business. One of hers became famous shortly after the start of World War II, when King George VI quoted it in his Christmas radio broadcast. Her words were balm for a nation undergoing the trauma of war again, just 21 years after "The War to End All Wars" claimed the lives of over 888,000 soldiers of the British empire. I reprint a few lines below, not because in any way, shape, or form is being a student at Texas State like being at war. The bit about going into the unknown, however - that would be just about every student's life, especially in the first week of classes. So enjoy . . .

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown." And he replied: "Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way." So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.

-- Pastor Jaime
