Beginning 7p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4 in the Student Center
Interested in reading, making friends, developing relationships and helping
others? I (Stephanie Ramsay) am starting a women's book club in Wilmore.
The first meeting will be at 7p.m, on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at the seminary
Student Center. From there we will decide if that time works, etc. At the
first meeting we choose a book and getting to know each other. I intend for
this club to not only be a social gathering--which it definitely will be--but also
an outreach/ministry. I am interested in doing service projects and fund-
raising through out the year. Hopefully the books we will read will relate to
the outreaches that we do.

If interested, please come to the first meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 4, and feel
free to call or write me at 434.996.7181, or

NEW ART SHOW OPENING: windbreathspirit
A new art show is opening in the lobby of the Sherman Thomas Student
Center. Sarah Jane Gray graduated from Asbury College in 2004, and went
on to complete her MFA at the University of Kentucky. Her work has been
exhibited in Indiana, Minnesota, and Washington State, as well as numerous
venues in the Lexington area. She currently teaches part-time at Asbury
College. Sarah Jane and her husband, Silas, live near Louisville, KY. Her
show is called wingbreathspirit. Read this excerpt from her artist’s

The linguistic relationship between spirit and breath predates recorded
Scripture. In Hebrew, the feminine noun ruach is variously interpreted as
spirit, breath, or wind; a similar homonym is found in the Greek word
pneuma. Multiple meanings can be frustrating to translators, and also to
readers looking for concrete answers. But the same subtle layers of metaphor
and meaning can also invite us to approach the divine with an attitude of
mystery, imagination, and wonder. Read the entire statement here.

7-9p.m. Nov. 12 in Cordelia A & B
Students of Asbury Seminary are teaming up with students of Asbury
College for Invisible Children’s The Rescue. This event will teach awareness
on the atrocities of war-torn northern Uganda and surrounding areas, and
what the people of Invisible Children are doing to change it all. Come for a
time of worship, lead by the college’s worship band, and a showing of the
informative documentary The Rescue. Afterward we will have a time of
prayer and information on what we in Wilmore can do to help.

An Open Letter From Student Chaplain Doris Khalaf
No tears in Heaven?
I once heard a speaker give a devotional (not necessarily theologically sound,
he warned!) about crying in heaven. He believed that once we get to heaven
we will realize the full extent of the extreme goodness and love of God. We
will be shocked to see the many opportunities we had missed in trusting His
goodness and willingness to do the impossible for us and through us on the
earth. Read more here.
