Report on Rev. Hyun

Carroll Wynne writes:  I was just in touch with Julie Kim who followed up on Rev. Hyun after his heart attack on Sunday.  He was taken to Jefferson where doctors said he was at the ER in time. They put in a stint. He may be released tomorrow. His sons/daughter – two of whom are physicians – were able to be with him on Monday.

Extra thanks to John, Jim, the sextons and three physicians/members who stepped right in to help!

Exploring Christianity Explored?

If you attended a parish Vision Night, you no doubt heard Liam talk about Christianity Explored, a seven week course that allows one to check out Christianity's basic claims. Liam would love to see us offer it on a regular basis both at the main building and in our neighborhoods and work places. If you're wondering what it's all about, consider attending Chris O'Brien's pilot of it during the 9 am hour, starting this Sunday in the third floor rear room of 315 South 17th Street. And if you are attending because you have an interest in helping Tenth host more of these, please send an email.
