Recorded at Covenant of the Cross, this video shows both Benton Stokes leading worship and me preaching.
The service begins at about 1:45 with singing,
Around 12:27 I introduce Pentecost and our kids. This is followed by a reading of the Acts 2 scripture.
Around 17:20 Benton leads worship; more singing, and some dancing, ensues.
Around 32:50 Benton leads the congregation into reflection and prayer.
And at 45:53 begins the preaching and Eucharist part of the service. That's me.
David: Giants Fall (12.11.16)
Advent of 2016 we invited artists from the congregation to express their understanding of each of the characters and events on a traditional Jesse Tree. December 11 was reserved for David.
My ministry partner Benton Stokes leads worship beginning around 9:55.
At 57:09 the artist begins talking about his work; the piece became part of the sermon.
Preaching begins at around 1:02:30 and ends with what turned into a kind of communion with slingshot stones! (The whole service ends at around 1:30, contrary to the time markers on the video.)
The sound is low at points on this recording so I recommend headphones.

There is a special ring of hell for people who abuse their email lists. I won't be in it.
