Mark your calendars!
One week from tomorrow, 23 November is our tzitzit tying class. We’ll practice, then tie the real deal. If you have tzitzit you want to tie, bring the threads with you. If you want to add techelet to white tzitzit, we’ll untie (shudder) the existing tzitzit and re-tie with techelet, after some practice. Everyone should be back from Israel, Texas and elsewhere by that time.

You should be reviewing Lesson ZERO AND Lesson ONE in the 1 John workbook  (available here) in preparation for Rick’s next class… coming soon, probably 30 November.

As you can see from my last post, Greg is working on a hats on – hats off class. Stay tuned for the class date.

We also have Joshua preparing a Hebrew class. You should have the alphabet memorized before he teaches. Review his handout here.

Tomorrow night we will look again to Matthew’s Gospel and prepare more of the bulwark of our defense of Yeshua HaMashiach. We will then review the questions I have for the Rabbi, and hopefully add several more to the list. I’d like to get a quick review of Tim Hegg’s seminar against Divine Invitation theology, attended by Greg Upham, Jonathan Upham and Greg Bartos, if they can summarize for us.

We will close by getting re-acquainted with Roger Magnuson, Esq., and his timeless message:

Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.

I like to watch this video once a year, just to get a swift kick in the purpose department. Daniel purposed in his heart ahead of time how he would react to given situations. This is critical for success in our walk of faith.

We are putting in a new order for tefillin. I have one set for Texas, and another for Charlotte. If you’re looking to save some money on shipping… now’s the time.

Program of the Month
If you’re not using Mo’adim from Bereans Online to populate your Outlook calendar (Outlook 2011 for the Mac is out, but alas, the Mac version of Mo’adim is not yet available <sigh>) with the parasha shavuah and Shabbat times, then you’re missing out!

Book of the Month
By far the easiest, and funniest read regarding the visible church and all its problems can be found in Daniel Gruber’s work, Copernicus and the Jews. It is nothing short of spectacular.

Copernicus and the Jews

I’ve been putting it off, but after the tying class… we have to do some history!
