Church of the Week: Faith Bible Church, Blue Ash, OH

The lovely Robin accompanied me last week to this week's Church of the Week (still with me?), Faith Bible Church on Kemper Road in Blue Ash, a Cincinnati suburb.

We were there for the first annual high school commencement exercises of the Christian Home Educators of Cincinnati, held on the afternoon of Sunday, June 10.

We entered into a large lobby, and though it wasn't immediately obvious, found our way to the auditorium entrance.

The above picture was taken well before the start of the program. By the start time, the auditorium was filled with hundreds of family and friends of thirteen graduating high school seniors.

It was my privilege to give the commencement address to the graduates. I stayed pretty close to them, to make sure none of them dozed off.

The graduates' diplomas were presented to them by the parents who had been their instructors, some for all twelve years of their schooling. All the presentations were very personal, touching, and beautiful.

It was a joy to be a part of this event, and fun as well to see some of this apparently fine church, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in 2012.
