"And this is the real and eternal life: that they may know you, the one and only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent." (John 17:3, The Message)
God has many names in the Bible, and each name tells us something about His character-who God is and what He does. We learn to know God and His character through experiencing Him in our daily lives.
This year at Java JOY we are going to take a look at what that means exactly. Each month a local woman will share her personal and inspiring story of how she has experienced God and how He has impacted and changed her. We hope their stories and these coffee-house gathering will help you see God more clearly, love Him more deeply, and trust Him more completely.
At our May Java JOY:
Deb Sandstrom will speak on how we can experience God as Yahweh-Shalom, the LORD is peace, at our Java JOY on Thursday, May 5th.
Join us for an evening of inspiration, encouragement and discussion - and bring a friend!
About our speaker, Deb Sandstrom, in her own beautiful words:
The dream of being a mother starts early in the hearts of many little girls, including me. I'm grateful for the privilege and also grateful that God appointed me an adoptive mother. Our first 2 children were born in Colombia, S.A. A few years later we adopted a 6-year old girl born in Guatemala. They are all adults now. It has been an amazing adventure and God has been so faithful to all of us every step of the way. He has revealed Himself often as Yahweh-Shalom, the LORD is peace, and Jesus our good Shepherd, the Prince of peace.
