Blogger Down

Yesterday (Thursday), the blogger system went down. I have just gotten access, but have lost the postings of Thursday and don't know if they will come back up. If you had something you needed posted and it is lost, send it back in.

Rental in Art Museum Area

I am a Tenth member who has been renting an apartment in the Art Museum for the last three years. I'm moving to a smaller apartment, but I wanted to let others at Tenth know about the vacancy in my current apartment. It is a beautiful two bedroom apartment with a large living room/dining room, hardwood floors, private patio, and extra storage in the shared basement. My landlord is wonderful and usually takes care of problems within a day! There is a coin operated laundry in the basement. The 48, 32, and 7 buses all make stops right near the apartment.

Boice Blog

Drew Dinardo has put together a blog devoted to all things James Boice. Check out his postings.

Car needed for global partners

One of our missionary families serving in the Middle East whom we support will be returning to the US June 15th to Aug. 26 and will be in need of a car during this time. They will be based in Philadelphia but will also travel to northern New Jersey and Florida. If you could serve these missionaries by lending them your car for part or all of this time, please contact Sophie at skim(at) or x240. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

Young Musician Needs Short-term Housing

A young Christian organist has the wonderful opportunity to attend the camp held at the Curtis Institute and needs housing from June 23 to July 1. His meals and daily activities are covered, he just needs a place in Center City or with an easy train commute to Center City to sleep and keep his belongings. Dr. Jones endorses him and says he is very responsible and respectful. His name is Philip Fillion, and he will be attending Wheaton College in the Fall. If you can provide a room, please email.

Open for Business

I came in this morning and found this email from our Senior Minister Liam Goligher. (No more "next"; as of today he is officially our Senior Minister).

"The great day has arrived and I'm open for business. Up at 5am working on Acts (who knew 'it is the most difficult NT book to interpret'?). Next Sunday (5/22) morning's sermon - 1 Samuel 1:21-2:10 - Your Kingdom Come."

The Acts reference is his evening sermon series. I hope the "5am" reference is not the new hours he is planning for church staff.

Jason Stryd

Jason Stryd is being ordained as a minister at Northeast Community Church, 3300 Tyson Avenue, this coming Sunday evening, May 15, at 6:00. This is the PCA church plant that we provided support for through the capital campaign. The other ministers are Maranatha Chung, who used to be a member here, and Vinnie Tauriello.


Today is the last day without a Senior Minister. Tomorrow, Liam Goligher bears that title for Tenth Church. Again, he will not actually be on site. That will happen on Sunday. But be giving thanks now for the Lord's provision, and be getting ready for a new era of ministry.

Finding a Church

Anna and Her Art

Anna Taylor is graduating from Gordon College in art. "What kind of art?" you ask. Check out the front page of Gordon's website to find out.

E-blast News

An e-blast will be going out today to Tenth members and attenders about events surrounding the Golighers arrival and ways to help. Because you are smart enough to read my blog, you get the news first. Here it is:

Dear Church Family and Friends,
The long-awaited day is almost here. Next Sunday, May 15, Dr. Liam Goligher enters the pulpit as our new Senior Minister. Here are plans and events related to the arrival of Liam and Christine.

Dan Halley Ordination

Dan Halley, a former intern of Tenth, will be ordained Saturday, May 21, as a minister of Columbia Presbyterian Church in Clarksville, MD. The service will be held at Rolling Hills Baptist Church, 11510 Johns Hopkins Road.

Almost Here

Two days to go before Liam Goligher officially is on the payroll and takes the title of Senior Minister. But he is already emailing me with ideas. How did he get my email anyhow? Phil Ryken must have passed it on.

He and Christine fly in tomorrow, but not here. They will stay a few days with their daughter and drive over to a home in Haddonfield on Saturday. We don't see him until he walks into the church on Sunday into his study. Hhmm...I suppose I should move my stuff out of there before then.
