Just a reminder that tonight is our 2nd last (for the season) for Hymns and Hops at the Heuther. We gather in the Malt Room in the basement (by the restaurant) at 7 and sing till about 8:25. Old and New Hymns will be there. Bring an instrument, bring your voice, bring a friend and join in some singing!

I’m sitting in my study today, enjoying the great sounds of Full House Brass as they rehearse for Wednesday. It is our last Wednesday at Knox (until September) and Full House Brass will be playing some wonderful music for us. It’s a pot luck lunch this Wednesday – and as always we meet from 11:45-1:00.

For those of you who were listening to Brooke’s sermon this past Sunday, you will remember that he couldn’t remember a “second point”.

So here it is…. the Barna Institute asked people – “what’s the first word that comes to you when you hear the word Christian?” In order this was their four top responses: 1. hypocrisy 2. bigotry 3. anti-gay 4. love.

Our challenge as the body of Christ is to live out the command of Christ so they will “know we are Christians by our love”.

Hope to see many of you tonight and/or Wednesday.
