I know three things about the Hill District: it has a long history, is full of many churches, and is an African American community.
I attended Warren United Methodist Church, one of the many historic African American churches in the Hill District. On Sunday, July 12, 2015, we lifted our voices in praise to God. After the service, I met many of the members and visitors, some of whom I’d met many years ago. Many thanks to Don Blinn–the senior pastor, Arletta Williams–lay liturgist, and Emma Greene–former pastor for a warm welcome.
Not far from the University of Pittsburgh
While living in Georgia, I have been an associate member at Warren United Methodist Church. I was warmly welcomed by Pastor Emma Smith and the congregation where I preached a sermon titled “The Body and the Tree.”
I also got to be a tourist in Pittsburgh
