A Guest Appearance

I'm learning quickly that the good people of the Water's Edge are folks who embrace the phrase, "Go with the flow." Luckily for us, the "flow" has brought us the opportunity to have an exciting guest preacher this week– one you may not want to miss.

Rev. Bob Edgar is the president and CEO of Common Cause, a national nonpartisan, non-profit "citizens" lobby working to make government at all levels more honest, open and accountable. He has also served as the General Secretary of the National Council of the Churches of Christ, the President of Claremont School of Theology, and served six terms as the Representative of the 7th District of Pennsylvania in the House of Representatives. He is the author of Middle Church, a call to progressive people of faith to take back the moral high ground from the extremists and make America a better and less divided country.

Rev. Edgar will be preaching about "Deep Water Courage," referencing the "deep water" to which Jesus sends the fishermen in the gospel of Luke. I am excited for the ways in which we might, as a community, be encouraged and challenged by his message this Sunday, and hope you will join me in welcoming him to the Water's Edge.
