Unless you live in places like Australia or South Africa where your winter occurs during our summer, ’tis the season that Nelly was rapping about in his chart topping, I-Hate-The-Summer-Heat jingle ‘Hot In Herre’ where he offers up meteorological advice to all his fans and listeners to begin removing garments of clothing so as to reduce one’s body temperature. And you know what? It totally works!! But if modesty is your cup ‘o tea and leaving your sexy threads affixed to your person is your prerogative, then perhaps instead of staying in a hot and steamy room, you can step into a nicely air conditioned facility where it is a delightful 75 degrees and carries an aroma of cherry blossoms and wild daffodils. And as you frolic in front of the cool breeze produced by the wall unit mounted just above your head, be thankful for the sacrifices made in the world of temperature engineering that created, designed and tested these lovely machine that produces such a soothing hum that not only lull’s you to sleep at night, but also neuters your sweat glands so you can stay dry in even the harshest of conditions. We salute you, Freon Freedom Fighters!!
[LiNK Film Viewing]
There will be a special interest film viewing sponsored by the organization LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) on Friday, July 9th at 7pm. This documentary is hosted by Lisa Ling, field correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show and sister of Laura Ling – one of the two American journalists recently detained in North Korea. It takes a look at what life is like inside North Korea. For more details on this event, check out the Facebook event.

Summer neighborhoods have commenced, and let me tell you, it’s been a doozie!! We will be spending the summer neighborhoods session discussing prayer, so if you’re interested in joining one of the 3 neighborhoods we have going on, send us an email and we’ll hook you right up!
[Relationship Status: Available]
No, Vox isn’t on the prowl for a date, nor are we trying to solicit help in matchmaking. We are, however wanting to let you all know that one of the Vox houses on the East Side is available to anyone who may be interested in moving into the neighborhood. This house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and lots of character. If you are looking for a place to live and are interested in exploring the possibility of living on the East Side, send us an email and we’ll help you change your housing status from “it’s complicated” to “in a relationship with…”
Again, we wanted to thank our community for their feedback in our ECC affirmation vote. We received overwhelming support from the Vox community that we should join ECC and continue down this path of partnership. The Nav Team will be coordinating with ECC as far as the logistics and will keep you posted on the next steps.
