If you missed our annual celebration of Historically Black Colleges and Universities -- well, there's still time to catch up.

We were thrilled to have the Singing Rams from Winston-Salem State University anchor our Sunday service, and let’s just say … they’re welcome back any time.

Be sure to catch their stirring rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at the tail end of the service.

And you won’t want to miss the sermon from the Rev. Dr. Kenyatta Gilbert, dean of Howard University School of Divinity, who preached on living “Almost Christian”:

Christ not only forgives us, Christ changes us. Christ transforms not only our inner selves, but our external behavior. And this is why it’s not enough to be almost Christian, saved and happy with ourselves because of the good we do. We must be Christian. And to be Christian is to follow after Jesus, take up our crosses, settle our debts, and live what we preach.
