This week as we consecrate our spectacular new Anne S. and Henry B. Paup Sanctuary Pipe Organ, we are delighted to welcome Dan Garland, organ builder, to present the homily for this historic occasion in our church. If you have been fortunate enough to have heard Dan speak in presentations to various groups during the installation process, you’ll know why I invited Dan to speak as part of this very special worship service in the life of our church.(see more)

I am sending this out on Tuesday, five days before the sermon on Sunday, for two reasons. One is so my foot will be nailed to the floor, so to speak, and I will be committed to preach from this….challenging story. The second reason is to invite you to email me back between now and Sunday about what of value you see in this. DiscipleChurch is becoming, and already is, a collaborative community. So…collaborate!(see more)
