Meeting to Fulfill John 17:20 - Greater Unity Among Believers

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

For those who are receiving this announcement for the first time, welcome! The School of the Prophets is an ecumenical group of men and women from many backgrounds who have been meeting together since January 2000. We meet this Saturday Feb. 4, at 7 a.m. at Austin Corinthian Baptist Church at 823 S. Cicero Ave., which is 2 blocks south of the Eisenhower Expressway on the east side of the street next to Marvin’s Soul Food Restaurant.

Our aim is to pursue the unity of believers that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20:
“I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”

This Saturday our teaching and devotional time will be led by Bob Muzikowski, the founder of inner-city little leagues in Chicago and New York. Bob is the author of Safe At Home (Zondervan 2001), a personal account that tells the real story of his life and his work with needy children and their families after he was misplayed by Keanu Reeves in the 2001 movie Hardball.

Bob is the President of Chicago Hope Academy, a Christian high school on the Near West Side that opened in the fall of 2005. Bob and his wife Tina still live on the West Side of Chicago where they are raising their seven children.

We will begin our time together at 7 a.m. with worship and prayer. Please pray with Brother Muzikowski as he prepares to bring us a word from the Lord. We will allow plenty of time for discussion and questions.

If you can stay, breakfast will be served at around 8:30 a.m. for a cost of $5.

To the glory of God!
Bro. Bob Marsh
323 West Chicago Ave., Hinsdale, IL 60521

The time with Bob was inspiring! It was also challenging. A comment made has caused me to reflect: "Why is it when a white man with money does what Bob does he is lifted up as a Hero and when a black man does what Bob is doing he isn't considered a Hero or recognized for his efforts?" Part of the mission of the School of the Prophets meetings is to ask the tough questions and act on the answers that God inspires! GREAT QUESTION!
