Why Not Come to Church Tomorrow? You Might Be Surprised!

If you live in Philadelphia, think about coming to church tomorrow at Old First Reformed, United Church of Christ! Here's what Michael says on Old First's Facebook fan page:

I am preaching on Mary (the mother of Jesus) this Sunday, and I wonder why the tradition has so stripped her sexuality; it seems we'd almost deny her gender if the church didn't need her womb... maybe as redemption of this inhumane bias, we need to bear Christ to the world, yes, with humility and in service, but also in our whole bodies and with the solace of great physical pleasure... Come Light the Third Advent Candle... for Mary who so graciously bore the Child. And see where I end up on this sermon.

4th and Race Streets. Sunday School at 10:00, service at 11:00. Street parking with a parking placard that you can get inside. Communion with bread baked by yours truly.
