February 17 Service at 10:30 AM
This service will honor Gertrude O’Kelly who was one of the most influential people in the life of a southern girl raised in Memphis, Tennessee, during the 1950’s. A childhood of being cared for each day by Gertie gradually led to the girl’s realization about the injustices in Gertie’s life and the unearned privilege in her own. This insight inspired the girl to begin a journey to find a more just community. This is the story of Gertie and Edith.
Professional clarinetist Margo McGowan will return to inspire us with her soulful clarinet.
Judy Putnam will add her piano accompaniment to Margo’s playing.
