We are looking forward to having Shai Linne and two of his church planting partners with us this weekend at First.
Shai is an accomplished Christian hip-hop artist whose albums include “The Atonement” and “The Attributes of God.” He was born in raised in Philadelphia and powerfully converted in 1999 through the ministries of James Boice and Phil Ryken at Tenth Presbyterian Church. In 2010 he completed a pastoral internship at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, and has been serving on pastoral staff of Del Rey Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA. Shai and his wife Blair have a son named Sage.
Tomorrow (Saturday) night some of us will be gathering for dinner with Shai and two of his church planting partners, Brian D. and Tim B., to discuss how the gospel shapes our view of race issues.
Sunday morning Shai will preach from Philippians 4.1–3. Afterwards his team will present their plans for their Philly church plant in the Chapel.
I hope to see you this weekend as we celebrate our Savior who has broken down every wall of hostility in order to make us one in him.
All praise to his name!
