Call for LTCF Friendly Visitors
Did you know that our congregational care department coordinates a visitation team for long term care facilities (LTCF)? These are church members who devote about 2-3 hours per month, including travel time, to visit our members who reside nearby in assisted living and LTCF. The team of dedicated volunteers brings the presence of PHPC to those who don’t attend worship services. Most of the persons we visit listen via WRR 101.1 FM. The LTCF team rotates, stopping by to see about 3-5 persons at a different facility each month. Visits can be made any day of the week at your own pace. After the visits the team member sends a brief email to the coordinator, Sandy Dehn. That’s all it takes. We currently have openings for two friendly visitors to join the team. Won’t you please consider it? Explore the idea by contacting Dee Wadsworth email@example.com or 214-368-6348 ext 118 for further information as well as training materials for those who wish to participate.
Dr. Anna Carter Florence Joins Us in Worship Sunday
Anna Carter Florence is the Peter Marshall Associate Professor of Preaching at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. She is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and holds degrees from Yale College and Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div. and Ph.D.). Before joining the Columbia faculty in 1998, Anna served as an associate pastor for youth and young adults at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis. Her books include Preaching as Testimony and Inscribing the Word, and she is a frequent teacher and lecturer in this country and abroad. In the fall of 2012, she delivered the Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School; her next book is based on those lectures. Anna and her husband, the Rev. David Carter Florence, have two lacrosse-playing sons, Caleb (Kenyon College 2014) and Jonah (Kenyon College 2018).
In our religious practice we often hear eloquent prayers that end up making us think we don’t know how to pray. Are there right words? Is there a right format? What is prayer for? Join Amy Moore Sundays through May 10 in Jubilee Hall B on a journey to discover your path to relationship and your experience with the risen savior.
