Friendship and Music 
 
On November 11 a party will be held in the Philadelphia, bringing together people from across the country and across the divide.   Gay, ex-gay and everstraight together.  Film at 11. :-)  Yes, we will take pictures and upload them.  

The following week Steve Schalchlin will sing in a conservative Southern Baptist Church in Dallas. 

Steve Schalchlin: 

"Maggie [Heineman] was talking about a Southern Baptist preacher in Dallas named Bob Stith and how great he is. He is also on the board of Living Hope, Randy Thomasí ministry.
"As he and Maggie talked, Bob kept hearing about her pet homo songwriter, SteveS, of course. And then suddenly he realized SteveS and Steve Schalchlin are the same person. So he wrote me, "Are you ..." 

"Well, it turns out that Pastor Bob used to be one of Steve Schalchlinís biggest fans back when he (I) was a Gospel singer in a group called The Damascus Road. Iíve slept at Bobís house, sung in his church and when I broke from the group back 20 years ago, he drove all the way to Jacksonville Texas to talk to me to make sure I was okay. 

"So this morning I called him, told him I was coming to Dallas in November, and I said, "Okay, Pastor Bob, I have a challenge for you. Let me sing in your church." 

"Without hesitation, he said Yes. 

"So, folks, for the first time in 20 years, SteveS is going to perform his entire program at Carroll Baptist Church in Southlake Texas (between Dallas and Ft. Worth) the week after our Philly gathering at Maggieís house. 

"I canít believe Iím going to sing for Baptists again."

Pastor Bob Stith: 
"This is not a public concert or ministry event. It is a willingness to listen to Steveís heart, to show him our love and hopefully the love of Jesus; to provide an opportunity for those who would like to hear what he thinks. There are still a number of people in our church who remember Steve. They love him also."
Vision 
People from across the divide will find a variety of times and places to fellowship together in the real world. And to make music together. 

The Last Session, Steve Schalchlinís musical about Gideon, a singer songwriter dying of AIDS,  and Buddy. a young conservative Christian who wants to save Gideonís soul, continues to reach audiences on both sides of the divide with its message of healing love.
