Quincy Street

We’re having a blast in Memphis with the Holt Srs, which means we weren’t in town on Sunday to receive the Sunday Boston Globe. This Sunday’s Globe was especially significant because it began a seven-part multimedia series about the Quincy Street Missional Church of Dorchester.  Our great friends, Aaron & Amy Graham, were instrumental in following God’s lead in joining his work in the Upham’s Corner neighborhood of Dorchester, a table which was set with a simple Bible study led by a 70-something matriarch called Ma Siss in a chop-shop-turned-commodities-closet.

This story, written by Pulitzer winner Michael Paulson, along with the accompanying video and photo galleries, have been three years in the making.  I’m so proud of the Grahams, Ma Siss, and the Quincy Street community for this nod in a world-class publication, and proud of the Globe for this positive view of Christian faith in action in Boston.  My prayer is that this piece will serve as a positive glimpse into the Way of Christ to a broad audience of readers and viewers.  Please, spend some time to check out these articles and accompanying media.

  1. Hey, Hey, Hey. Slightly new blogspot (just in case you are interested!) I’m so jealous of your time in Memphis!
    PS-My sweet picture frame is sitting on my nightstand.

    I was about to say I stumbled across your blog tonight but I’m not sure I had anything to do with it…

    What an amazing, empowering story – thank you for sharing what the Lord is doing on Quincy Street. Every video, every song, every testimony was incredibly inspiring and carried with it the sweet aroma of Christ.

    I’m jealous that you have friends like this and can take part in this kind of ministry. Blessed be His name.

    Daniel! Glad you stumbled across the blog. We’ve talked about you often (good things, of course) while in Memphis for the holidays. Hope all is well.


    Lindy — loving the new blog. Keep it up!
