March Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Can you believe that Easter is only a few short weeks away? Easter is March 27th this year, almost as early as it can be according to our church calendar. It will not be this early again for at least forty years! Our moving calendar of festivals can sometimes…

February Chimes

Dear Friends, Lent begins this year on Ash Wednesday, February 10, and I wanted to give you a preview of our Wednesday Evening Lenten Series.

September Chimes

Dear Friends: There is an interesting word in Swahili: the word mgeni. I always think of the above words from the Book of Hebrews when I think of the word mgeni. When I was taking Swahili at Bryn Mawr College, I remember being puzzled when I was doing my homework one night because mgeni can…
