June 23 – Worship – “The Man Who Walks Inside Me” - Tommy Tomlinson – Worship Coordinators – Amy Beth Miller and Kathie Shiba - Our guest, Tommy Tomlinson, spent 23 years as a reporter and columnist for the Charlotte Observer, where he was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in commentary. He's written for publications including Esquire, ESPN The Magazine, and Sports Illustrated. He is also the host of the podcast SouthBound.
In today’s service he plans to talk about trying to retain the best parts of our identities as we try to rid ourselves of the worst, and whether it's possible to make that work. He is experiencing this now as he goes through the process of becoming a different person by losing weight. Following the service, Tommy will be available for Q & A, as well as a book signing of his memoir, The Elephant in the Room (which will be available for purchase).
