“Grace, Redemption, and Then Again…” led by Lon Newman, guest speaker
August 21 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Lon Newman, who was, for 28 years, the executive director of Family Planning Health Services with headquarters in Wausau, has returned to his musical roots since his retirement 6 years ago. He’s been playing at Long Term Care facilities, senior centers, and maybe a Northwoods tavern or Virgin Islands bar or two. He’s sharing with us a broad musical exploration of the relationship between faith, action, hope and redemption. Some gospel tunes, some folk tunes, some with a tinge of country or rock and roll — all having a contemporary message. Some tunes show a bit of the darker side of our chosen natures. . . plus a whimsical tune or two just so he says we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
