A Prayer Request

I wonder if I might ask you all to pray for my pastor.

Dr. Glenn Weekley, the pastor of First Baptist Church of Hendersonville, Tennessee is in critical condition this afternoon at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.

Bro. Glenn has been undergoing treatment for cancer for the past couple of weeks. They were prepared to begin chemotherapy this week but he got pneumonia. Wednesday afternoon Doctors were beginning a procedure to drain fluid from his lungs. There was a complication with that procedure and Bro. Glenn went into cardiac arrest.

He is in critical condition in the ICU at Vanderbilt and doctors tell his church family that the next 72 hours are critical for him.

Please pray for Brother Glenn and his family as well as the church.

Cohort this Thursday and beyond

This Thursday, September 6 the Nashville Cohort welcomes author/speaker David Dark from 11:30-1:00 at the Flying Saucer in the pool room.

David is the author of Everyday Apocalypse: The Sacred Revealed in Radiohead, The Simpsons, and Other Pop Culture Icons and The Gospel According To America. He is a Nashville resident and will challenge us with some great food for thought at the Saucer this week.

Coming this fall...
Next month (October 4) we will play host to Emily Snyder and Steven Miles. Steven and Emily are students at the Vandy Div school and have started a movement to deal justly and Christianly with the immigration issues facing our community and our nation.

Finally, in at our November 8 gathering (or possibly December - we're still working it out) author Will Samson will be with us to speak about the topic of practicing justice from his new book Justice in the 'Burbs. I've read it and recommend all of us pick up a copy before meeting with Will on the 8th.

As always try and call in your lunch orders to 259-3039 by 10:00am on the day.

Peace to you all in Jesus,
