[Vox News] National Karaoke Week Edition

Happy National Karaoke Week, everyone!! After you’re done reading this week’s newsletter, grab some friends and go work out your pipes with some fun tunes paired with irrelevantly awkward images. Good times, good times.

[Sunday Liturgy]
Our Sunday Liturgy is at 11:00 AM at Mosaic (5619 Airport Blvd). Join us as we continue our series entitled ‘Courage’, based upon the book of Joshua.

[Muntu – Reflections in East Austin]
This multimedia exhibit offers the entire Austin community a time and space for shared reflection on this and related questions, for conversations of all kinds, in diverse media. There are 2 more events happening this week, both of which will be happening at Space 12, so please join us if you can. The events are:

1. City Council Candidates’ Forum
Thursday, April 23rd, 6pm – 8pm
With the overarching purpose of Muntu being about what is happening to the trees and people of East Austin amidst the city’s changing cultural and geographical landscape, we will be having questions for city council and mayoral candidates regarding community concerns.

2. Open Albums
Saturday, April 25th, 10am -12pm
The first of a series of free monthly breakfasts to share photographs and stories from growing up in East Austin. Join us as we listen and see the stories from those who grew up on the East Side. If you have a neighbor who grew up on the East Side of Austin, please invite them to bring a photo and join us for this beautiful event.

For more information, please see the facebook event.

[Vox in Galveston]
There will be a team of 8 from Vox going to Galveston this Friday to lend a hand with cleaning up the fingerprints of Hurricane Ike. Please pray for their safety, as well as for lasting relationships and bridges of healing to be cultivated.

[Vox Baptism]
Baptism is the public celebration of participating in Christ’s death and resurrection. It connects us both to what God is doing in this world and with the global/historical community of friends following Christ. At the moment, the baptism is scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd, so if you are interested in getting baptized or finding out more information, please contact Weylin.

[297 Collective]
Do the phrases ‘intentional community’ or ‘communal living’ invoke a sense of curiosity, excitement or interest in you? If so, we’d love for you to consider joining the 297 Collective. We currently have several spots open for those who are interested in taking part of Vox Veniae’s communal living initiatives in East Austin. For more information or an application, please send us an email.

[BYOM – Bring Your Own Mug]
Because food is such a great catalyst for community, we plan to have delectable edibles and drinkables available every Sunday morning during our liturgies. Although it would be easy to buy disposable cups for the drinks, we want to be an environmentally conscious community and ask that everyone bring their own mug. This way, you’ll not only feel more at home, but we can all do our part in reducing unnecessary waste.

[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.
