SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 26.
Friends and Family Sunday.
We welcome to our pulpit/stage this morning Mark Williams, a local singer/songwriter who currently teaches environmental studies at the Environmental Charter School in Regent Square. Brian Junker writes: “As a performer, Mark is an appealing mix of Raffi and Ben Harper or maybe Michael Franti, very much focused on the inherent worth and dignity of every person and on the interdependent web. By themselves, his songs are catchy, spiritual, and grooving. He has a story to tell, though, about teaching kids that they have inherent worth and dignity and that because they are worthy, the environment is worth taking care of – a story sharpened by tragedies he has witnessed in his students' lives and processed through songwriting and a very big heart.” Bring your friends and family to this wonderful opportunity to have your heart touched and your spirit lifted!
