Kelly will share her journey of faith outside the relative safety of the ivory towers and into the battle for our nation. David, her novelist husband, is to blame for Kelly’s wake-up call. He will join her.

In 2000, David wrote the novel, The War Against God which, years later, catalyzed the Kullberg’s interest in the funding streams and rhetorical strategies of “evangelicals” behind the Obama administration and its policies. They’ll be telling this story of life imitating art. Of truth even stranger than fiction.

Conversation will include the whole counsel of Scripture in relation to the immigration bill and the “evangelical leaders” promoting it. While we all may agree that reform is necessary, we do not all agree that the 1,200-page Gang of Eight bill is the needed reform.

Kelly founded The Veritas Forum now in 130 universities around the world contending for the truth, Veritas, of Jesus Christ. She edited/co-authored bestseller Finding God at Harvard and authored the sequel, Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas. Together the Kullbergs co-authored A Faith and Culture Devotional.

Summer Picnic Plans!

FOOFers,

Our summer picnic is scheduled for Monday, June 17th from 7-9 PM @ the Fancyburg Park shelter house.  A map is shown on this link.

Please invite your friends and neighbors to this Fellowship of Believers!  Fancyburg has a great playground for kids!

I have invited a young Wycliffe Bible Translator missionary friend to join us!  Hasso Pape (www.wycliffe.me/hasso) grew up in Upper Arlington, and is preparing to join a team of software developers in Texas to create programs that assist translators with storing, sorting, comparing and preparing data for publication, allowing technology to tackle tedious translation tasks.  Wycliffe is committed to seeing Scripture translation in progress for every language still needing a Bible in their own mother tongue by 2025.  (http://www.wycliffe.org)  Hasso will spend a few minutes sharing his work and inviting us to join him in the process of bringing the Word of God to remote people groups.

At our last meeting, we collected enough money to pay for the facility rental.  Since it would be incredibly hard (and expensive) to anticipate how much meat to purchase for grilling, we will supply the charcoal and have a fire burning and ready for any meat each of you want to bring.  (Please bring any needed buns as well.)

In addition, we will set up tables for pot luck contributions.   If everyone brings one entrée or side item, and one dessert (knowing how FOOFers like sweets), there should be plenty for all…!

I will bring table settings, paper products and condiments – and will have coolers of ice with a selection of drinks available.  You are encouraged to bring additional beverages as desired.  (Per UA park policies, alcohol is prohibited in parks and facilities at all times.)

Please respond to this post if you intend to come, with a number estimate (kids and adults).

Join us as we imitate the pattern set up for us by the early church!
Acts 2:42  “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

We Are The Church!
