Surrounded

As you can tell, I am really excited about this weekend and all that God is doing at College Hill United Methodist Church. There is a buzz in the air about everything that will be happening this weekend. My attention has been on Worship. I can't wait to be worshipping together and offering thanks for 100 years of ministry.

On Friday night, our Pastor Emeritus, Hengust Robinson will be preaching in our service that I am calling the "Throwback Service." We are using old liturgical language, old hymns, no technology (with the exception of our new sound system), and we are inviting people to dress in "period" clothing.

Hengust's sermon is entitled "Surrounded" based upon the text from Hebrews 12. We are using the old King James language for the service to add to the old style. I have some idea about what he may be doing - but will not give away any surprises!

I invite you to come and worship with us at 7:00 p.m. Friday evening and stay for an ice cream social following.

That actually sounds way cool. If I didn't already have a committment, I'd try and be there.

Or to put in a grammatically correct fashion: "I'd try to be there."

Last night was awesome - Hengust showed up as the first appointed pastor of College Hill, talked about old times, the way things used to be and how we are surrounded by the cloud of witnesses. Truly spectacular.

Today (saturday) is our contemporary service at 4:30 and I am really looking forward to it!
