What happened at Judson last Sunday, glad you asked.
It was another great Sunday. We had a special guest: violinist Karen Thomas! She accompanied Jim on the piano with Morning Has Broken and Simple Gifts
Call to worship was loosely based on Chance the Rapper's song Blessings.
Question of the Day: When was the last time you were lost?
We sang This Little Light of Mine and Hush, Hush Somebody's Calling My Name and The Summons (which is my favorite hymn, plus with the violinist I was taken to the third heaven and someone even almost came forward they were so moved by it and I think we even did a better job than First-Plymouth! but they do an amazing job...
The choir offered Dear Refuge of My Weary Soul and Take My Life
Rev. Karla McGray gave an amazing Personal Reflection.
The Lessons were a selection from Upstream by Mary Oliver and Luke 9:1-6.
I offered a pretty good sermon, IMHO, Finding Our Way
But my favorite part of the service was the bulletin cover. A few months ago someone found a treasure trove of old Judson photos. This being the 109th anniversary week of Judson we chose to share some of them on the front cover. This one, The Deaconnesses of 1930 is my favorite.
After Adult Education (Legacy Giving) a few of us went on a mini-pilgrimage to the corner of 38th St. and Harriet Ave. (the original site of Judson Chapel). Then we headed east to Funky Grits. What an amazing restaurant. Then we stopped by the Arthur and Edith Lee House and learned of its history and then toured some Tilsenbilt Homes.
