If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.

Reflections on the Right Order of Things
Our CUC speaker this week will be our own Tom Knight who has chosen as his subject “Reflections on the Right Order of Things” based on the book by Dr. Jim McCormick ,
The Right Order of Things- A Christian Theology for the Rest Of Us. Tom always brings us an interesting lesson.

We would like all money turned in by this Sunday for those who are attending. Claudia Phelps and MariAnna Brown are planning this event.
The event will be at The Diner at North Point, 2355 Mansell Rd. Alpharetta. We will also have a box to collect welcome notes, cards, etc. in the CUC Class (or people may bring them in the night of the dinner). It looks like it is going to be a good party!
