What started as a pulpit exchange is now moving beyond that. “Soulful Sundays” began on January 10 with a sermon on baptism identity and how it can serve as a guide towards racial reconciliation Sermon The following Sunday, Central shut their doors and shared in a service at People’s. The Sunday after that, the congregation met at Central. On both Sundays the choirs combined to produce stuff like Jesus is a Rock in a Weary Land and I love the Lord, He Heard Me Cry.
But here’s where it gets really good. Since the pulpit exchange more exchanges have been taking place. Last Thursday for example, women from People’s joined women at Central during their monthly women’s group, making what was initially just a pulpit exchange something more permanent.
