Every November, I am invited to preach at a congregation somewhere for their WELCA Thankoffering service as they raise up women in the congregation to lead the whole worship service. This year it was at St. Stephen in Shreveport, LA.
I have been to this congregation a few times as their Synodically Authorized Worship Leader Joel Hicks is one of our candidates for ministry. They have always been extremely hospitable and they do an exceptional potluck dinner.
I anticipate my next visit here will be for Joel’s ordination sometime next summer.
