Notes from Encouragement Talk

God blessed us with gorgeous, 24 degrees Celsius weather and we met in front of the Athabasca Hall.  We formed a circle on the grass lawn and held our first ever Bible talk outdoors. It was a wonderful time, as we enjoyed the last few warm days of the fall.

Below are the notes from this talk, which focused on "Encouragement."  We looked at the example of Barnabas (the Son of Encouragement) from the Book of Acts, and how he was generous, supportive, full of faith and a persistent man.  Then, the discussion centered on some ways in which Christians today can be encouraging to other people, whether it is by sharing time, energy, money or love.

We meet today for the third time this year and the topic of our talk is "Encouragement".  Another student group has booked the Athabasca Hall today, therefore, we will meet in the lobby, in front of this hall, at the regular time, 6:00 p.m.  As always, there will be refreshments after the talk, at around 7:00 p.m.

Join us tonight, September 27, for a great time of fellowship and Bible talk.  If you cannot make it, the notes of our discussion will be available tomorrow on this website, so that you can read them on your own time.

Notes from Peer Pressure Talk

Here are the notes from our Peer Pressure talk of last evening.  We enjoyed each others' comments and sharing of ideas about how peer pressure can affect us positively or negatively.  The story of Peter denying Jesus was used as a Biblical example of negative peer pressure.  We talked about how when we are with Jesus we are not alone, how He provides us the comfort and the assurances the world cannot give us and how we should not be afraid when we are with Him, because everything will work for good for those who love God (Romans 8:28).

If you have a question about last evening's lesson or would like to talk about it, please drop me an e-mail.

Today is our second activity of the year, and the topic is "Peer Pressure."  Because of the rain, we are canceling the serving of hot chocolate and bags of goodies at 5:45 p.m. to students walking by Athabasca Hall.  However, there will be plenty of hot chocolate and snacks after the talk, at around 7:00 p.m.  

Join us tonight, September 20, at 6:00 p.m. at Athabasca Hall, Heritage Lounge.  If you cannot make it to night's talk, its notes will be available tomorrow, so you can use them in your own personal Bible study or share them with your friends.

New Beginnings: What Next?

CBT held its first activity yesterday, September 13.  We began with serving hot chocolate and bags of goodies to students walking by Athabasca Hall at around 5:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Then, we talked about "New Beginnings: What Next?", a very informal discussion about what lies in front of us when we begin something, how to get to the finish line and the purpose and the result that motivates us through this process.  We used the Bible to illustrate this idea.  The notes of this talk are included here below.  Feel free to download them and use them for your own personal study or to share them with your friends. 

After the talk, we had a great time of fellowship, with more hot chocolate and snacks. 

Join us next week at the same time, Monday, September 20, 5:45 p.m., at the same place, Athabasca Hall, Heritage Lounge, for our next activity.  Everyone is welcome.
