Up above my head, I hear music in the air

I am not preaching today. Please come hear The Rev. Nicholas Forti, our associate rector for young adult ministry, who will be preaching at all three services today -- 8 am, 10 am and 5:30 pm. We also will be serving dinner tonight to returning University students.

Here is a treat for your Sunday, offered up by Lori. This is a televised performance of Sister Rosetta Tharpe (1915-1973), who was a pioneering singer in the 1930s-40s and whose music influenced gospel and rock. She was truly a cross-over artist, bringing popular music styles into the church, and gospel out of the church and into the world. Enjoy...

Jim and Lori,
I love gospel music. Fortunately WTJU (91.1) plays it on Sunday mornings from 9 till 10, which is where I caught a song by Eric Bibb.
Do you know him? Check him out at
