POP Shines at Christmastime 2017 Luncheon
Friday, December 8, 2017
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Every December Prayers Of the People (POP) holds a Christmas luncheon to honor its Lay Ministers and the beautiful ways God has worked through them during their time with patients and caregivers in hospitals throughout the year. Churches, organizations, POP staff and board, and Lay Ministers gather in fellowship to celebrate the ministry and grow closer in POP’s long-established community.
The Reverend Asa Hunt, III Lecture Series takes place during the luncheon and guest speaker Alan D. Valentine, M.D., Department Chair, Department of Psychiatry, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, will present “Control is an Illusion and Certainty is a Myth: A Conversation with a Cancer Psychiatrist.”
The lecture series draws from the fields of spirituality, arts, sciences, and medicine to provide renewal and education for those who followed Jesus Christs’ commission, “I was sick and you visited me.” As a pastor and chaplain who deeply loved God and God’s people, hallmarks of Asa’s ministry included counseling, mentoring new pastors and motivating hundreds of volunteers and service ministries.
