This coming Sunday is Youth Sunday. It’s a day that our youth get the opportunity to lead the congregation in worship. It’s a day that our church announces to our teenagers that your home is in the church and not just the Justin Building. It’s an incredible day! Our theme for this Youth Sunday is “True North” and it comes out of the John 14 passage when Jesus makes his infamous I AM statement, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” It’s a passage that has been used in a variety of ways both to include and exclude. However we’re not going to talk about it that way. Read more.
Robert Stovall gives a quick preview of the music offering for this Sunday.
Youth Sunday: a Bittersweet Celebration
As final preparations move into place for our Youth Sunday worship service, this annual event featuring our Youth as leaders of traditional worship now takes on the added role of celebrating the ministry and service of its Director, Andrew Mochrie. Read more.
Pass the Peace
Many have noticed that we have brought back an earlier tradition to our order of worship in our Sunday morning Traditional worship service in the Sanctuary — the Passing of the Peace. While Passing the Peace, at first glance, feels like just a way of creating a friendly and welcoming environment, the theological significance of this part of the worship service extends far beyond its handshakes and hugs.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Caregivers Workshop
What does a diagnosis of dementia mean for the person who is diagnosed, as well as his or her family and community? How can we as a faith community work together and partner with local resources to provide optimum care and support for each person in our midst who is affected by this diagnosis? How can we know what to do — and when? Read more.

We’ll Leave the Light On
“We’ll leave the light on for you” is an iconic tag line that began running in 1986 for the Motel 6 hotel chain. The campaign itself won numerous national and international awards, and was selected by Advertising Age magazine as one of the Top 100 Advertising Campaigns of the Twentieth Century. Read more.
TCU political science professor raises crucial concerns for our time.
Dr. Len Delony
This past Sunday Dr. Jim Riddlesperger presented to us some deeply disturbing contrasts in the “First Talks” Class (in room 350 at 9:30.) We viewed graphs of recent studies, that show how polarized our political world has become. For me, to see how much things have changed in recent decades, was not so much a surprise, as it is a kind of “wake up call“. Read more.
Message from Andrew Mochrie
It is with such a heavy heart that I write this letter. EJ and I have been offered an opportunity to move back to the southeast, Asheville, NC, putting us a lot closer to our family, and we have decided to take it. For EJ and me, it was one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make, but it’s one we believe is the right move for our expanding little family, as it puts both her parents and mine less than a half-day’s drive away.

Rev. Tom McDermott
I remember a very simple magic trick a friend of mine used to do back in college. We’d all be sitting at a table in the cafeteria and he’d ask for a quarter. He held up the quarter in his right hand and then, resting his left elbow on the table, he’d rub the quarter alternately on the table and then into his left forearm until it had “dissolved” into his arm and disappeared.
