This has been quite a weekend! I'd like to share a few of the highlights with you via pictures. On Saturday we attended the Symphony in the Flint Hills, a concert presented by the Kansas City Symphony in an open-air setting in the heart of the scenic Flint Hills. The day was very hot and humid, it was a sell-out for 6,000 folks, the music was an original score inspired by the scenery of the Flint Hills, and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Joining us for worship on Sunday were Greg and Bobbi Calmes. Back in 1964, Greg was the Youth Delegate on the Pastor Nominating Committee that called us to our first parish in Hobart OK--so we go back a long way! Greg has an aunt who is a member of our church in Wichita, so the five of us had a memorable day together. Some of you who have been with this journal since its inception may recall that we visited them in Seattle in Feb. 2005 on our way to Vancouver to see Carla receive her Certification in Christian Education. And now meet the newly called Senior Pastor and Head of Staff of Eastminster Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Dr. Steven Marsh. It was a great day - EPC members turned out in full force for all 3 services to meet and greet Steve, the Hiltons received a standing ovation during the congregational meeting, and we are delighted to report that Steve will be here by the end of July. Jerry's last Sunday will be July 16, followed by some fishing vacation in Colorado, and then HOME! Blessings on all of you! Carla is home safely with her group from their mission trip to New Orleans, and we are grateful for your prayers.

Don't forget to give us a call when you are in town. We would love to see you and discuss Londontown. L & J

What is this thing you have with pastors named Steve? I think it's becoming a bit obsessive! :)

Dr. Steven Marsh was our very first speaker for Spiritual Renewal Weekend!
