Contemplating a Change

That’s the name of the 6-track CD put out by Katie Wallis and friends, and what a terrific night we had last night at its launch. It was a family affair—the Wallis family and many from the church family here at Centenary helped to put on a wonderful dinner and clear out the church so we could sit at tables there.

The CD comes out of Katie’s response to the Global Walking trip to Zambia that she and a number of others (including Ben Walton) went on last year, particularly to Mwandi, a village in which AIDS has taken a great toll.

Katie and band played some songs she had written, some with Matthew Green and Joy Stovall. They are wonderful and so moving, but of course I’m a fan. If you want to get hold of the CD ($15—cheap!), contact Centenary Uniting Church; all profits from the CDs are going to Mwandi.

Here are some pics of the night—thanks to Rob!
