A Historic Church with a Progressive Spirit

Were you to stroll along the path in Madison Square Park, you’d see across the street a very old limestone building nestled among the trees on the corner. Using its stained glass windows, steeple, cross, stately traditional architecture as clues, you’d recognize that building as a church, and you might say to yourself,

“There’s a church with a long history in downtown San Antonio.”

You’d be right about that. But, were you to surmise that the members of that church must match the building’s old and traditional architecture, their faith confined to conform within old walls of conservatively traditional beliefs, their Christian living limited to the past’s worn out definitions and prescriptions, you would not be right about that.

Carrie Newcomer in Concert
Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “soaring songstress” by Billboard and a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. The Austin Statesman described her as having “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate” and Rolling Stone once said, she “asks all the right questions.” Most simply put, the Dallas Morning News said, “she's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, ‘that is so true.'”
