regarding opportunities...

"A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds."  -- Francis Bacon

"As the Wind blows, you must set your Sail."  -- Thomas Fuller

"Strike while the iron is hot."  -- James Howell

"Timid men are more likely to be moved to trepidation than daring in the face of great opportunities."  -- Henry Kissinger

"In affairs of importance a man should concentrate not so much on making opportunities as on taking advantage of those that arise."  -- La Rochefoucauld

"A missed opportunity is worse than a defeat."  -- anonymous

Every time a new semester of Adult Christian Education Classes begins, it is the arrival of another opportunity for your faith to grow and mature in new directions.  Be bold.  Seize the day.  

Adult Christian Education Classes, Fall 2010... Come join us!
Joshua and the Flow of Biblical History - the Grace Awakening Class
Romans: The Righteous Shall Live by Faith - the LAFF Class
Each for the Other: Marriage as It's Meant to Be - the FaceBook Class (for young adults)

Remember also the great words of William Wallace:  "Aye, come to Adult CE Classes and you may be challenged or confronted or boldly encouraged.  Stay home with your newspapers or TV's and you'll remain comfortably unchanged... at least a while.  And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our newspapers and TV's that they may take our weekday mornings, but they'll never take...   OUR GROWTH IN THE THINGS OF CHRIST!!!"
