This week, we'll be looking at Jesus' wake-up call to his disciples and followers. We'll consider our own cycles of metaphorical sleep and the subversive message of Christ that calls us to the Living Waters.
We are excited this week to welcome Rev. Dr. Kara Kilpatrick to preach this week. Kara and her husband Jeno worship with us regularly at Early Worship, and we are delighted for her to lead us this Sunday. Kara was born and raised in Birmingham, AL. She received her M.Div. from Beeson Divinity School at Samford University and her Th.M. from Princeton Theological Seminary. She was ordained in the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley when she became a chaplain through the Methodist LeBonheur Healthcare system in Memphis, TN. She worked in chaplaincy for 7 years before entering medical school at East Tennessee State University from which she graduated with her M.D. in 2016. She moved to Kentucky for Psychiatry Residency training at the University of Kentucky and is currently a Fellow in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Kara is married to Jeno Smith, and they share their home with Doogie, a 7 pound maltipoo.
