This has been a wild year with lots of upheaval in our country and world. It is also the 50th year that Teleios has been helping men grow in their faith -- our Jubilee year. It reminds me that the love and power of Christ, for these past 2,000 years, has grown in the believer’s heart in the midst of and in spite of the challenges we face. It is in the midst of challenge that Jesus declares to us, “you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” He is with us and shoulders the burden of the load. This is truly good news.
The Teleios board has decided that our fall celebration dinner will be virtual this year. It is the safe and right thing to do. We want to celebrate God’s wonderful faithfulness these past 50 years and share our sense of what He is leading us to in the future. We would therefore like to invite you to join us in our week-long Teleios 50th Jubilee Celebration from Sept 24 - October 1. The celebration week will be highlighted by a video “event” that you will be able to watch virtually or in small gatherings with your group and other friends, and family members.
As we plan to celebrate our 50th year, we would like to hear from you. Would you take a few minutes to send us a brief (45 seconds or less) video on “what it has meant for me to be involved in Teleios, in my group, and in my friendship with Jesus and others?” We hope to collect many reflections and share some of them in our virtual event and throughout the rest of the year. Our soft deadline for videos and items is August 15.
See below or click here for further instructions and helpful hints on making your recording. You can email attach your recordings and other photos to David at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail items to 4616 25th Ave NE, Box 502, Seattle, WA 98105. Please reach out to David with any questions.
We will get more details to you as the vision for the event grows, but for now, please mark your calendar for Sept 24-October 1!
My friends, may knowing the love of Christ today bring “rest to your soul”. His love holds and undergirds us!
We want to hear from you!
As part of our 50th Anniversary, we are hoping to collect artifacts from the past 50 years of Teleios.
