Did You Know:

From: Lee Schearer,
To: My Fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members

"In-depth faith"

To me in-depth faith means more than a conviction to a cause, to me it means "a way of life in my soul". People who demonstrate in-depth faith are driven to do more than may be required both for themselves and for others. They are extra-motivated individuals who are never content with their current situation or performances. They are driven by an inner and ceaseless urge to scale new heights, break old records and set new levels of achievement.

So it is with many members of the Leads Group who demonstrate their "in-depth faith" both in themselves and in their desire to support each other and make this world a better place both for themselves and for those who will continue after we are gone.

I hope to see you all this Wednesday morning with a smile on your face, a song on your mind and In-depth faith in your soul.

Support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
