Professional People North East is a social group for single professionals in the North East who first and foremost want to build friendships and socialise – meeting someone special for some would be a bonus.

Not all single 40+ people want to hit the dating sites or have a friend, colleague or family member play matchmaker for them. So this group is idea for anyone who would like to get out a bit more, build friendships, socialise with other single professionals.

Great thing is that it’s so cheap to join – £10 a year and if you go to our events then you buy your own food, drinks and tickets so you have control of what you spend and can keep within your financial budget.

What do we do? We are an events website that run pub meals, coffee, cinema, friendship group, restaurants in the North East. Members log in – find out what events are on and if they want to go they click the RSVP button to let other members know they will be going – simple!!!

Where do we meet? Newcastle and Gateshead mainly however any member can add a social event to our calendar so if you are in Sunderland, Durham, Tyne Valley, Northumberland that’s fine – just pop up an event on our website (its free to add you own things) at your local pub, coffee shop or maybe a walk somewhere nice, dancing lessons, or whatever interests you. See who comes along and maybe you will be a new friend or 10.

Are you locked inside in your Shack?

Posted on

In this months Spirituality Cafe we are looking at … a book – The Shack – a New York Times bestseller – the story of a man lifted from the depths of despair through his life-altering encounter with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit

If nothing else it is interesting and very thought provoking.

 

Listen to it (all 8 and a 1/2 hours) for free on YouTube read by the author.

Here’s some information from Amazon about the book:

 

Mackenzie Allen Philips’ youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack.

 

Against his better judgement he arrives at the shack on a wintery afternoon and faces up to his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever.

 

In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, ‘Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?’ The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You’ll want everyone you know to read this book!

Here’s some reviews:

 

Review’Brilliant! One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read’ (Bear Grylls)

‘Clearly the book is speaking loud and clear to a lot of people’ (The Independent)

Bunyanesque … bold, imaginative, humane and funny. (Church Times)

This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan‘s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his. It’s that good! (Eugene Peterson)

‘This is the most heart-warming, inspirational story I have read in decades. If you only read one book in the next year….read THE SHACK’ (J.John)

‘By far the most captivating, deliciously written and theologically refreshing page turner of a novel I have ever read.’ (Gerald Coates, Pioneer)

‘Dangerous, dangerous way to do off-the-hook theology, I love it! It’s not just what happens when a theologian becomes storyteller: this is what happens when a survivor who has experienced God decides to tell a story. This should be required reading in spirituality/theodicy classes everywhere. The Shack will quickly become a modern classic, and it will inspire imitators. But very few will match the competence of this work.’ (Siku)

THE SHACK is the most absorbing work of fiction I’ve read in many years. My wife and I laughed, cried and repented of our own lack of faith along the way. THE SHACK will leave you craving for the presence of God. (Michael W. Smith, Recording Artist)

This story reads like a prayer – like the best kind of prayer, filled with sweat and wonder and transparency and surprise. If you read one work of fiction this year, let this be it. (Mike Morrell, Zoecarnate.com)

Reading THE SHACK during a very difficult transition in my life, this story has blown the door wide open to my soul. (Wynonna Judd, Recording Artist)
