Sunday, July 29, Nativity will do something different. Our Senior Warden, inspired by the "Summer Chapel" she often attends in western North Carolina, had the idea of an outdoor, bluegrass-inspired worship service. It just so happens that Nativity member Ben Johnson is quite the accomplished bluegrass bassist. Put a good idea and great talent together, and all of a sudden we're preparing for our first Bluegrass Mass!
At 8 am, we'll worship inside just like normal: air-conditioning, church clothes and all. At 10:30, come dress comfortably: in shorts, t-shirts, straw hats, whatever! And come ready to sing those eminently singable bluegrass standards like "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" along with Ben Johnson and his merry band of bluegrass musicians. We'll gather on the large patio to worship, to pray and to sing. We'll share communion and then, following the service, we'll share a potluck lunch together.
