92: Wherein the man with a toupee reaches the highest note

What a serendipitous moment! My favorite soloist (for his sheer whistle falsetto that he inserts into every hymn and Gospel song) was at the mic as I arrived. Yes, he wears a toupee which does not cover his greying temples. Choir in white. Pastor (Cool Cat) Lynch is sitting on the edge of the stage. Today's sermon? Vegetarianism (text from Daniel). I have never heard his argument for vegetarianism (and I thought I had heard them all). Summed up: Eat living things (like potatoes and lima beans and apples that all grow when you plant them). Don't eat dead things like meat or animals that eat meat which rot when you put them in water or the ground. He rocks.

This is where I spend Sunday mornings: New Prospect Missionary Baptist. Took my cue from Becky to snap a shot. Glad I did! (Will get some outside views once the weather improves—the neighborhood deserves its own photo shoot.)

Love seeing where you worship! So glad, too, for your description of the soloist. I can picture it. I know how awkward and public it feels to take a photo at church! I broke out my camera again this week (during "greeting" time) and got some questions from some high schoolers. Only comments when I explained about my photo journal were... "I didn't know you did that. That's cool!"

I love your church! I love your pastor! I love you! :) (Your post just fills me with love...and reminds me why I'm trying the vegetarian thing)
