Here's the article about Highland's outreach minister, Joe Almanza. He and Becky are an amazing couple who are leading us outside the safe walls of "church" into the world that God so loves.

  • What a wonderful article! Joe and Becky are radiant lights in our community and they are being used as vesels to proclaim the reign and favor of a redemptive Savior.

  • Meg - I have on my calendar that there is a Taize service this Sunday evening, Sept. 11. Let me make sure that's right. Mike

  • I have been blessed to know Joe & Becky and have seen the results of some of their outreach. They have touched many lives already through their neighborhood walk and ministry at Faithworks. Please pray for energy and good health for these two as they work tirelessly to reach the unchurched in our city.

  • Meg - I had this note this morning from the Taize ministry at Highland:

    "Our first Taize service of the year has been planned for Sunday evening, September 11. There are several circumstances that will make this Sunday's service especially meaningful. We will have the opportunity to pray about the tragic events of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. We will also be aware of the events of 9/11 four years ago. Finally, many of you know that the visionary and spiritual leader of the Taize community, Roger Schutz--"Brother Roger"--was murdered just a few days ago during a worship service. He was 90 years old. These and other reasons, both public and private, call us to the cross, to prayer, to confession and reconciliation. The service will be held in the Highland atrium. It will begin at 8:00 p.m. Come early. Enter in silence. Leave in joy."
