Lunch on a Summer Afternoon

Linger longer after church and attend the Global Outreach lunch on Sunday. It's a great opportunity to meet Tenth folk, chat over lunch, and then hear reports from our partners. This week we'll hear from the Maranatha summer team on their outreaches in Chester, Camden, and Philadelphia as well as from our partner visiting from India. He has great slides and you can hear firsthand what it's like to try to incarnate the gospel in a Hindu village in northern India.

Lunch begins at 1 p.m. in Fellowship Hall and the price can't be beat: $10 per family or $4 per individual.

Where Are the Facilities?

Work has begun on the Catacombs bathrooms, which will be off limits for a couple of months. We are turning over the Men's Bathroom off Fellowship Hall to the women and bringing in portables for the men (really).

I do have a bathroom outside my study, and am offering a special deal for anyone joining my club membership...

In Time

1, 2, 3...keep up the tempo, Paul.

Sam, pianissimo, please.

I am getting Paul Jones and Sam Hsu ready for a concert at Keswick in New Jersey.

Pick up that tempo, Paul. I need piu mosso!
