“Come To The Table: An Evening Of Worship” To Continue U-Church Series

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

The Lee University spring U-Church season will continue with the student-led event, “Come to the Table: An Evening of Worship,” on Sunday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

“Come to the Table” is a unique worship event that is designed and led by students. Attendees encounter many diverse styles of student-led worship, including music by the Lee University Chapel Band, elements of spoken word, dance, art, and Communion.  

The theme for the evening will be “Stories of Surrender” which was inspired by Revelation 12:11a. The event will also feature a new original song written by members of the U-Church creative student planning team. 

“The original song was born out of this idea that we've all been found in the same place - a place of brokenness, hurt, and hardship - but, as Christ meets us there, we respond with surrender,” said Caroline Hamby, a junior music and worship major and student worship leader. “That looks so different for everyone - maybe surrendering a dream, a plan, or a wholehearted lifestyle change. But at the end of the day, it's something we all share - being covered by the grace of God, we must constantly position ourselves in a yielded posture of surrender.”  

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Please contact Lindsey Sifferman at lsifferman@leeuniversity.edu for more information.

Bob Tamasy: Finding Real Hope In A ‘Hope-So’ World

I’ve always enjoyed music, although I only sing so-low (that people can’t hear me), and the only instruments I’ve ever played were the drums, in high school and college. (I still play the steering wheel if I hear something with a good beat while I’m driving, but I don’t think that counts.) Anyway, words of familiar songs often come to mind, even simple ones that carry a good ... (click for more)

Eric Youngblood: The Curious Case Of The Talking Dinner Plate

We are richer than I previously realized. You know how I know? A dinner plate told me. Really. A nearly 22-year-old dinner plate assured me of previously unconsidered riches one evening. Don't worry. It didn't actually speak to me. But its presence communicated a hidden world of wealth to me. As I hastily (and rarely!--as some might want to clarify ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Kids Are Still Funny

I have never seen nor heard of a child actually getting one’s “head pinched off” but by modern-day standards the threat just switched in overdrive. There are children in our communities who haven’t been to school for six long days and the brutal temperatures drove the little darlings to inside where they most predictably stirred up all manner of mayhem. Back when I was in Elementary ... (click for more)
