Brethren in Christ Historical Society to Hold Heritage Service This Sunday

Attention readers in the Pennsylvania/Maryland area: Consider coming out this Sunday at 3 p.m. to the historic Ringgold Meeting House (14426 Misty Meadow Rd, Ringgold, MD 21783) for the Brethren in Christ Historical Society’s annual Heritage Service.

This year, Terry Brensinger — international pastor/teacher with the International Brethren in Christ Association — will be speaking on “Selective Recall,” drawing on Deuteronomy 8.

Other speakers include Esther Ebersole, who will describe her years as a mission worker in Kentucky, and yours truly. I’ll be talking about my growing interest in Brethren in Christ history.

Of course, there will also be congregational singing — which always sounds beautiful in the old Ringgold Meeting House.

For more information, check out the Spring 2010 issue of the Historical Society’s Newsletter.

  1. Devin, Wish I could participate in the worship service, but I have other obligations. Will the gathering be recorded in some manner? Let me know. In Christ, Tom

      Tom, I doubt the proceedings will be recorded, but I will be posting my speech on the blog come Monday. And hopefully I’ll be able to cajole someone who was there to offer some reflections on the event (Brensinger’s sermon, the singing, the atmosphere of the Ringgold Meeting House, etc.) via the blog at some point.

      Thanks for asking!
