From the Director

Taste and SeeGod really wants to please us. According to A.W. Tozer, “God is kindhearted, gracious, good-natured, and benevolent in intention.” He is also cordial, he never thinks any bad thoughts about anyone, and he is infinitely good, always good, and perfectly good.

NCF Urbana 12 ExhibitAmazing! Urbana 12 can hardly be described any other way. Our outstanding NCF staff and campus volunteers planned healthcare seminars, hosted the NCF exhibit, taught seminars and guided 7 nursing students in the special Student Leaders Track.  It was a joy to meet students face-to-face and pray with them about God’s plans for their lives!

UniverseDuring Advent, we direct our thoughts and hearts to the first coming of Jesus as Lord and Savior, and we look forward to his second coming as Christ the King. As we pray, light candles and sing hymns, we share in the wonder that our Creator God became a diminutive, vulnerable baby to rescue our broken world.

Well-watered treesRain is a huge blessing in parched Texas where I live. Water gives life and fruitfulness to God's creation. In the same way, Scripture tells us that people who trust in the Lord will be "like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream" (Jeremiah 17:8 NIV).

Jane HallDear Friends,

In the upcoming weeks, we will be charting our direction for 2012 and beyond, based on the resources God provides through his people this month.

This is one of the most crucial seasons of the year for us.
