On Sunday, March 10, we will have the delight of welcoming Rev. Dr. Paul Smith to our pulpit.

Dr. Smith is a retired PC(USA) pastor, having served congregations in Buffalo, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Brooklyn Heights, New York. He also worked in higher education, serving as an administrator at Washington University in St. Louis and as vice president of Morehouse College in Atlanta.

A veteran of the Civil Rights Movement, having participated in the 1965 marches from Selma to Montgomery. In the late 1950s, Dr. Smith introduced Andrew Young and Martin Luther King, Jr., to each other. He is the author of Facing Death: The Deep Calling to the Deep, reflections on his time with Arthur Ashe at the end of Ashe’s life.

Dr. Smith’s biography, Listening for the Sound of the Genuine, will be available for purchase on March 10.

Dr. Smith will preach at both services on March 10 and then will host a conversation about issues related to racial reconciliation afterwards.
