[Vox News] National Game & Puzzle Week

From Cricket to Bocce Ball. Buskashi to Polo, and Mahjong to Sudoku, games and puzzles are happening all around the world. In a world where turmoil, fighting and disagreements spring up like weeds, games are like the epidural that help mother earth take the edge off. From hi-tech games like Halo and Farmville to no-tech games like Rock, Paper, Scissor and Tag, there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re passive or aggressive, coordinated or clumsy, there’s a game out there with your name on it. As you gather around the table and gluttonously gorge on stuffing, sauces and sweets, bring your favorite game and put it next to that oven roasted bird for a nicely balanced meal. Game on? For the sake of the world, let’s hope so!!

[Sunday Liturgy]
For centuries, people waited for a messiah that would bring hope to a broken world full of suffering. Now in the 21st century, the world is filled with news of war recession and anxiety. This season of advent is a welcome change of pace for church communities to rest, remember and hope. Join us this advent season as we unite with the church both globally and historically through the lectionary remembering when hope entered the world. Our Sunday Liturgy is at 11:00 AM at Space 12 (3121 East 12th Street).

[Vox Thanksgiving Feast]
Planning on staying in Austin this Thanksgiving? Don’t have any plans for the holidays? Well, we’ve got a slip silly jamboree planned for YOU!! Join us on Thursday, November 26th for a Vox Thanksgiving Feast Extravaganza. It’ll be a potluck, so please bring something to share. But don’t worry, we’ll have the turkey and the Texas vs. A&M game, so you won’t miss out on your annual dose of Tryptophan and sweaty man fighting. Here’s the details:

Date: Thursday, November 26
Time: 6pm
Location: 4421 Camacho Street
What to Bring: Something to Share

RSVP on facebook

If you’re planning on coming, the hosts have asked for people to RSVP by Wednesday. This way, the hosts will know how many people to expect, and since this will be a potluck, everyone will know how much to bring. If you have any questions, please send us an email.

[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. If this at all interests you, please let us know by sending us an email.

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.
