I am so glad to let you know that Dr. Jim Bankston will be speaking to Ordinary Life this week. Jim has provided excellent leadership for St. Paul's during the seventeen years he has been Senior Minister here.
I have wanted Jim to speak to our gathering for some time but his schedule is always so full.
This will be an excellent time to engage Dr. Bankston on a more personal level and to get his take on what is going on in the religious scene. You have heard me say that St. Paul's is a bubble. It is a good bubble but it is not reflective of what is going on with the rest of much of organized religion.
I hope, if you are in the Houston area you are able to attend and take advantage of this opportunity.
