The unveiling of the mosaic on October 10th, 2014 was quite an event - pouring rain and loyal supporters 
Thank every one who helped bring this art to being.

Dennis has been writing music to beat the band. His compositions are online and can be accessed at And Soundcloud.

The fundraiser was successfully funded
- THANK YOU, supporters! - 
Thank you to the many supporters who have given us their vote of confidence!

We are very excited about actually realising this inspired idea.

This pixie was designed by our brilliant daughter and sculpted by Candace as a laniappe for the mosaic. He just needed to be above that door. And speaking of our brilliant daughter, her most recent work can be viewed at her Deviantart pages.

The Sermons of Dr. Robert R. Ball

    At the request of the author, and with great pleasure, we will be presenting Dr. Robert R. Ball's 1970s series of sermons from Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston, Texas. At the 2010 Joyful Noise choir  reunion and conference it was a joy to discuss with Dr. Ball the theology approached in this series of sermons and the subsequent effect they have had on the lives of the young people who heard them.

     Each sermon presented in this context comes from copies collected, carried, preserved and studied by TEENAGE congregants, who have incorporated this thinking into their lives (we are currently in our sixties). Dr. Ball wanted to share these for the edification of the new generation and the revivification of the older one.

          Presbyterianism being primarily a volunteer organisation, Mom naturally volunteered for this happy duty. It is an honor to revisit the foundation of Mom's whole philosophy and theological outlook.
