It is my delight to be able to share some exciting news with you– Bishop Barbara Harris has accepted my invitation to lead the Adult Forum and be our preacher on May 11 for one of our Liberation Sundays– Women’s Journeys. It was 25 years ago, on February 11th, that Bishop Harris became the first woman in the Anglican Communion to become a bishop. She had a long and distinguished career as Bishop Suffragan (assistant bishop) in the Diocese of Massachusetts. She is known as a truth teller– and I have told her that Redeemer is a place where she can feel free to do just that!
In addition to that bit of wonderful news I can say that we are minutes away from announcing our leadership team for RedeemerFest 2014. Have you thought about the event that you’d like to organize under/beside the tent on the front lawn, June 6-15? All ideas are welcome as we ‘take it to the streets’!
Mark your calendars, invite your friends, and come early to get a good seat (or find parking): May 11th for Bishop Harris and June 6-15 for RedeemerFest 2014!
Yours in faith,
