Inch by Inch

            The Rev. Jerry Wagner used an excerpt from, Christian Civility in an Uncivil World, in a sermon at Picture Rock United Methodist Church in Pennsylvania on July 04. The section he used dealt with my visit to the Crystal Cathedral and the sermon by Robert Schuler. We met Pat and Jerry at Chautauqua several years ago through our friends Jane and Bob Russell. Jerry is a great punster and has a wonderful sense of humor.

Thankful Thursday – Joan Lipscomb Solomon

            Today on this Thankful Thursday I am thankful for my friend Joan Lipscomb Solomon originally from Walhalla, South Carolina. Joan and I were friends during our days at Furman. She later moved to Rochester, New York. Every summer she summaries the sermon from the worship service given the day before in the amphitheatre in the Chautauqua Daily. Joan has such great insights and such talent and ability that her work adds to the experience. It was Joan who first suggested that I submit a proposal to teach a workshop at Chautauqua. That began my love affair with the institution. Joan has contributed to my understanding of what it means to be one of God’s children.
