Picnic News

A fun time was had by all at the church picnic on Saturday, sponsored by City Outreach. In the Ultimate Frisbee Tournament, the championship game was played by Total Depravity (sponsored by the pastoral staff) and Beat Ryken ( sponsored by City College and Career). Beat Ryken lived up to its name and schooled Total Depravity 10 to 3. In a post-game interview, Ryken said that his studies into the meaninglessness of such activities took away the usual sense of urgency by which he normally played and led his team. More than once, as he ran towards the floating frisbee, he could not rid himself of the thought that this is mad folly.

Watch His Feet!

I missed the morning services yesterday. I represented Tenth at the worship service of Korean United Church, whose people were celebrating their fortieth anniversary as a congregation. It was a wonderful experience.

So I missed the organ dedication. I did, however, make the Friday night concert. It was what I expected - glorious music played by a master organist. What I did not expect was the footwork displayed. Where I was seated, I could not see the projection screen easily. It wasn't until I was walking past the choir loft to help with the offering that I glanced over and saw Paul Jacobs playing the foot pedals as another keyboard! It was incredible.

Thanks to Paul Jones for all the work put into this concert and for seeing that Tenth has received such a fine instrument.

Kay Hunt

Long-time (46 years) Tenth member Kay Hunt died Saturday morning. Dori Baggs sent in this picture along with these comments:
I've attached a photo I took of Kay Hunt at a Sparrows event back in 2003. I joked with her at that event that I wanted to take a picture of the "oldest" Sparrow in the group with the "youngest" one, (who was Magdalena Cedeno)! Kay was a humble and incredible woman. A godly role model for women of all ages. She had energy that put us younger ones to shame! She was involved in so many things...sending birthday cards to our global partners for years, singing in the choir, involved in committees, and an active participant in Sparrows until her health forced her to stop. Even though the past few years she was not able to attend church due to health concerns, she was still ministering to those around her! She would write to me that she prayed for her roommates in nursing homes or in the hospital, telling them about Jesus. How like Paul...ministering in chains! This verse came to my mind as I grieve her passing, "Her (spiritual) children rise up and call her blessed." -Proverbs 31:28
A funeral service will be held at Du Bois Funeral Home on Wednesday, September 17, at 11 am. The family may be greeted between 10 and 11.
