Welcome! Here's what's happening:
Monthly Meeting at the Belo
We meet at the Belo at noon on the third Thursday of each month. It is a great encouragement for all who attend. We hope you can join us!
Join us for lunch at the Belo, at noon on Thursday, November 20th, when we will get unique insights into how God is working in the Middle East from the perspective of two Christian Jordanians—Nabeeh and Ruba Abbassi. Nabeeh is the Founder & General Director of the Arab Center for Consulting & Training Services, and will provide background on ISIS, its violations of human rights and what Christians are doing in Northern Iraq and Syria to address the tragedy caused by ISIS. Ruba is the founder of Arab Woman Today, a Christian ministry to women throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and will describe today’s Arab woman, her opportunities and challenges, and how AWT is reaching out to her with both the Good News and help in overcoming her unique struggles. Come learn how Christians are ministering to Arab communities in need of His love and mercy.
On Thursday, October 16th, Hon. Greg Wilhelm moderated a panel discussion on the ethical practice of law entitled, “Client Engagement: When to Just Say “No”. Thanks to Keith Nelson, Tom Kulick and Paul Storm for joining me on the panel. Those participating received CLE ethics credit.
Our SMU Mentor Program Needs You!
Please consider signing up to serve as a mentor to our SMU law students. We are nearing our start date and we still need more volunteers.
If you are unfamiliar with the program: we mentor SMU law students, one on one, throughout the school year; mentors are encouraged to reach out once a month to their student(s). There are 2 low-key, casual social events for mentors and students, one in the fall and one in the spring.
I can assure you that you can make a big difference in the lives of these students, who often are in the process of making important lifetime-affecting decisions while in school. You will be enriched by serving.
If interested, please contact Lee Baldwin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
