ROH#15: CFC USA January Journey
Dear CFC USA Family:
If you have not decided on your New Years' Resolution for 2015, CFC USA has one for you -
Join the January Journey...the Quick Journey to the Great Adventure Bible Timeline!
Based on the monthly Reflections of the Heart: Letters from your PFO materials, the most hits was the September 2104 teaching: "Prevent Truth Decay: Sink Your Teeth into sacred Scripture". This clearly shows our hunger for the Word of God.
Imagine how our CFC USA Family would change if we all had a profound encounter with God in Scripture, and began relating to him in a personal way. The Bible is at the heart of everything we do and believe as CFC Catholics. A good Bible study can renew Community life, and enrich our faith.
If you want a better understanding of our faith, and a deeper relationship with God, then I invite you to join us for A Quick Journey Through the Bible, beginning January 2015. What a great way to start the year. By being a part of this study, you will not only benefit personally, but you will also help to bring about a profound renewal in our Community as we all grow closer to Christ.
A Quick Journey Through the Bible provides the clearest, easiest, and most accessible way to understand Scripture. This study is suitable for both beginners and for those who are experienced at Bible study, because it simplifies the complexity of the Bible through an easy-to-follow narrative approach, and an ingenious color-coded Bible Timeline. It is a great way for you to get the “big picture” of Salvation History from the Catholic perspective, and to see how the Bible reveals God’s loving plan for your life.
The study will include a series of eight, half-hour DVDs presented by Jeff Cavins. Each DVD will be followed by a lively group discussion. Everyone who participates will receive a color-coded Bible Timeline Chart as well as a Bible study workbook for a minimal cost. Orders for the required materials will be through ABLAZE USA . This may turn out to be your best minimal investment. Your respective Regional Heads who have been provided with one set of DVDs and Workbooks (Leaders and Students) will make arrangements on and communicate to you how this journey will unfold in your respective areas.
CFC USA will begin A Quick Journey Through the Bible in the month of January 2015.
I encourage you to join us in this truly GREAT Adventure!
In Christ through Mary,
CFC USA PFO
