[Vox News] National Hot Tea Month Edition

As we find ourselves in the middle of this national cold front otherwise known as Winter, we need something to keep our bodies warm. Of course, there are many different options ranging from high tech (read Central Heating) to practical (read Jacket), all the way to the absolutely absurd (read Snuggie). But all of these things keep you warm from the outside and won’t help in turning up the heat from the inside out. Fortunately for us, we have National Hot Tea Month to ward off the chills and bring in the thrills. In addition to providing the warmth of an overcoat a taste that tickles the tongue, tea is known to possess many different health benefit that range from oral health to mental stability to physical detoxification. Forget the fatty hot chocolate and dump the warm milk, because all it’ll do for you is make you bloated. The next time you’re reaching for a hot drink, grab your favorite tea and say sayonara to frost bite, and hello to good health.

[Sunday Liturgy]
Our Sunday Liturgy is at 11:00 AM at Space 12 (3121 East 12th Street). Join us as we continue our journey through the church calendar known fondly around the globe as the Lectionary.

[Neighborhoods Teaser]
Spring neighborhoods will be launching in the very near future. More details coming soon. Any immediate questions, feel free to email us.

[Lost and Found]
No, we’re not referring to the band whose song ‘Lions’ features the slinky as a percussion instrument. We’re referring to the bin of unclaimed goodies and homeless artifacts located next to the water cooler by the bar at Space12. If you think you may have left something at Space12, chances are it’s been put into the lost and found bin. At the end of each month, we plan on donating the contents of the lost and found bin, so please check to make sure you haven’t misplaced anything you don’t mind passing along to those who can use it.

[Getting Involved with Vox]
Have you always wanted to get more involved with Vox but haven’t known how? Do you have a passion or vision for something that Vox isn’t currently involved in? If you answered YES to either of these questions, then this is for you!! We would love to help you get more involved with what’s happening in the Vox community, as well as come along side your passion and vision to help it leave the dream realm and give it life.

[WYOMP]
You might be wondering what this acronym stands for. Well, allow me to spill the beans!! WYOMP stands for ‘Wash Your Own Mugs, Please ‘. One of the new perks of having our liturgy at Space12 is the plethora of mugs and drinking utensils at our disposal. Unfortunately, when the liturgy is over and the snacks are all consumed, the once clean cups are left dirty and all alone in the sink. If you could, after you have finished enjoying the delightful snacks and beverages, please lend a hand with washing the mugs and drinkware. That would be greatly appreciated.

[Won’t You Be My Friend?]
Hi, my name is Vox Veniae, and this is my cousin Space 12. I’m 4 years old, and Space just turned one a little while ago. We’re very friendly, housebroken and love our bellies rubbed. We would like to be friends with you!! We promise to not Zombie bite you, nor will we ask you to join our kingdom. We just want to be your friend because that will make us happy. Click here to add Vox as a friend and here to add Space12 as a friend.

[Rides to Vox]
If you live on campus and are in need of a ride on Sunday morning to join us for Liturgy, please email us and we’ll hook you up. If you could send an email by 11pm on Friday, that would be greatly appreciated.
