The beautiful location.We are happy to announce that CFN will be meeting on beautiful Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach Florida. The Fort Walton Beach/Destin area is a family favorite feast destination, and it is easy to see why. With sugar-white sand beaches, abundant family friendly leisure and recreational activities, and a veritable smorgasbord of dining options to please every palette, there is no end to the possibilities for family fun.
The modern venue.CFN is excited to announce that we will be hosting the Feast of Tabernacles at the wonderful Emerald Coast Convention Center again in 2018. The ECCC is located at 1250 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548 on beautiful Okaloosa Island. The ECCC is situated on the main highway connecting Fort Walton to Destin. It sits just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, and backs up to a state park on the inland waterway of Choctawhatchee Bay. This modern facility has spacious public areas, meetings rooms for all the many feast functions, and a grand ballroom that serves as the worship center for the feast.
The Luxurious Housing: Members have varied housing needs and interests and the beautiful Emerald Coast is the best place we've found to provide the ideal home for each family. You will find a wide range of restaurants, shopping and activities. Many members will be staying at:
    Azure
    Waterscape
    Summerplace
    Many others within one mile of the Emerald Coast Convention Center
HOUSING DISCOUNTS: Are available to attendees of the Common Faith Network Feast of Tabernacles. Resort Quest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals is offering 15-20% discounts for their properties in Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island, and Destin (including Azure, Waterscape, Destin West, Bella Riva, and many others).

We suggest you try Airbnb and VRBO. The good news is that many are having success finding beautiful, affordable units available for the specific Feast days.
WORKSHOPS:CFN is on the cutting edge of feast developments, and CFN feast attendees LOVE seminars and workshops. We are making plans for a week full of helpful, informative, and entertaining workshops from the family of faith.

Additionally, the young adults (ages 19 and up) will be challenged and encouraged in the INFUSE program with life application learning that extends outside of the classroom and encourages community service.
SPEAKERS:CFN will once again provide a variety of speakers from across organizational lines to inspire and instruct God's people during the feast.
MUSICCFN has something for just about everyone when it comes to music. We enjoy a variety of musical styles and lift the sound of our instruments and our voices in praise with standard hymns, old time gospel, contemporary gospel, and praise & worship music.

Are You Growing Or Shrinking?

A couple weeks ago, a speaker in one of my church groups asked, “Are you using major disruptions in your life to grow or to shrink?” This question really hit me. As my regular readers know, I’ve had some major disruptions in my life over the past year. They’ve been prompting lots of personal growth, … Read more Are You Growing Or Shrinking?

Letter

From Jim O'Brien

Hi Friend,

Power of the Gospel

Ever seen a night satellite photo of Korea? It may be the most dramatic illustration that a picture is worth a thousand words. North Korea is engulfed in darkness while South Korea shines bright, sparkling like a diamond.

Korea was once a single nation of people with the same ethnic and historical background. What caused such a dramatic difference? The answer is politics. Today South Korea is wealthy, free, well-fed and productive while their brothers to the north are a starving concentration camp.

South Korea allows the political freedom to preach the Gospel-the message that has transformed it into one of the most Christianized nations on earth while North Korea puts people in prison for preaching the Gospel.

If you think the case is overstated, look at Iran, Saudi Arabia, China and Cuba. In each of those nations freedom to preach the Gospel is outlawed and slavery abounds. Politics has opposed freedom and Christians are enslaved.

Still, some Christians in America believe it is wrong for a believer to get involved in politics. That concept overlooks the history of the country where 29 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence held seminary degrees. The first session of the Continental Congress began in 1774 with a three-hour prayer meeting. Christianity was a fundamental force in the founding of the country. And we have prospered!

The fact is that ALL laws are based in morals-the laws against theft, murder and child abuse are a reflection of a morality that says we shall not harm another person. When the Bible is outlawed as a source for value education, what source will serve as a replacement? Will it be a school, or the medical profession, or a political party? What evidence exists to say that any of these individuals or institutions will serve as a better source for teaching values than God? And why should Christians in a free society be denied a voice in policy?

People who are intolerant of those who speak for Christian values are simply expressing another form of bigotry.

The final analysis is, when a nation removes God as the basis for law, there will be a human being who will enforce his morals on us.

In all the history of this earth, there has never been a nation or people who have had greater prosperity than those who chose the values of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Until next time,

Jim O'Brien

You Were Born Into a Ready Made World of Religion

We were all born into a ready-made world of religion, one that you did not design or create. The problem is we have all passed on things to others about God that we thought were true but never proven.

Did Jesus Build His Church on a Foundation of Lies?

Today’s churches do not remotely resemble the early New Testament church. Much of what you see today in religion is nothing more than man-made traditions. Today’s religion has become unrecognizable by God.
