Come Welcome our Guest Preachers — The Worship and Music Committee is intentionally adding diversity to our guest preacher list. While Pastor Bill is on vacation from July 29-August 12 our guest preachers will be the following:
July 30: the Reverend John Chang-Yee Lee, chaplain of United Theological Seminary in New Brighton. A graduate of San Francisco Theological Seminary (as is Pastor Bill), Rev. Lee is ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament with the Presbyterian Church (USA). He has served as a hospital chaplain in acute and long-term settings and as a congregational pastor focusing on congregational redevelopment and community ministries. Rev. Lee is a musician and songwriter. With his wife and children, he moved to Minnesota in 2008 from San Francisco, CA. His wife, Evelyn, is Eugene Orr’s sister.
August 6: Elona Street-Stewart, Delaware Nanticoke, is a ruling elder and member of Dayton Avenue Presbyterian in Saint Paul. She is the Synod Executive for the Synod of Lakes and Prairies, following many years serving the PCUSA on racial justice matters in mission development and support programs. Also, for the past 40 years, she has been involved in grass root and national justice advocacy on racial equity, Indian education, family empowerment and public policy. Elona has received many honors, including Minnesota American Indian Parent of the Year 1998, a national PW Women of Faith Award 2010, and a Peacemaker Award in recognition of Mahatma Gandhi’s 147nd birthday. Serving on the Saint Paul School Board for three terms, she was the first Native American elected to an urban Minnesota school board as well as the first to be installed as a synod executive in the PCUSA. An Upward Bound student from Philadelphia and Occidental College graduate, Elona and her husband, Rev. David Stewart (now retired long-time pastor of Dayton Avenue Presbyterian Church in St. Paul), have 4 children and 3 grandchildren.
