Rich – Well welcome to the World Communion Sunday podcast. My names Rich Birch the host around these parts. Super excited to have Linda Koelman with us today on the show as we count down to the first Sunday in October. This shared Sunday that we have together as a church. I’m super excited for that day and for our conversation. Linda welcome to the show today.
Linda – Thank you very much I’m glad to be here.
Rich – I’m so glad to have you. Linda why don’t you talk a minute and just introduce yourself, who is Linda?
Linda – Well I have been a United Methodist pastor, I went to seminary as a result of a mission trip. So missions are very close to my heart. I have been serving a small inner-city congregation. It’s my 18th year now starting now and we are a very mixed congregation. It’s one that was all Anglo Saxon when we came and they are very mixed at this point. So we have a multicultural group.
Rich – Very cool, it’s exciting to hear about… I know a lot of congregations haven’t been able to navigate that transition well but it sounds like they have your church which is encouraging.
