Ed Kilbourne in Concert Saturday, January 30th at Carolina Beach Presbyterian Church
1209 N. Lake Park Blvd. • Carolina  Beach, NC 28428

Singer, storyteller, and folk-theologian, Ed Kilbourne, will be performing at Carolina Beach Presbyterian Church on January 30 at 7:00 pm.  This popular artist is known for his collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues. He combines his acoustic guitar and singing with a storytelling style often compared to that of Garrison Keillor, the radio humorist from 'Lake Wobegon'. 
Ed began his career in the early 60's, singing in folk groups while in high school and college. During a professional career of 8000-plus solo appearances over the last 40 years, he has worked in every region of the United States and toured in Europe. Ed has recorded 23 albums, among them a 4-CD collection of in-concert performances of his stories and songs, "The Grateful Ed Live" released in 2008. His latest CD's are "A World of Good" and his second greatest hits collection, "The Best of Ed/Volume 2". Ed and his wife, Kathleen, make their home in Englewood, Florida on Manasota Key.
Join us for an entertaining evening of music and worship!

Carolina Beach Presbyterian Church to host Annual Soup Supper January 27th

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016 , starting at 6PM, the Carolina Beach Presbyterian Men will hold their annual soup  supper. This has been a long standing tradition that has our Presbyterian Men busy fixing beef and vegetable soup, chicken noodle soup, corn bread, and fabulous desserts.
Entertainment follows with our Director of Music hosting the program.  This is a highly anticipated event for our members, but we would like to extend an invitation to anyone to attend. It would be a great opportunity to see our new activity building, and to meet the members of our church. There is no charge to attend, but donations are gladly accepted. We will serve until the soup runs out. Hope to see you there. The activity building (and parking) is behind the church, which is located on Lake Park Bvld. beside the CVS.

Do our souls yearn for heaven?

One of the most significant problems our culture faces today is the loss of transcendence and its four negative consequences:
• It causes us to underestimate and depreciate our nature, dignity, destiny and meaning in life;
• It takes away an important source of healing and consolation for those who are suffering and sick;
• It causes alienation from reality, others and ourselves, negatively impacting suicide rates, family relations, substance abuse and sense of fulfillment and hope;
• It leads to a decline in ethical motivation within individuals and ethical conduct within culture.
Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., uses physics, cosmology, psychology, neuroscience, NDE studies and contemporary philosophy to reveal the truth of our spiritual nature in his new book,
THE SOUL’S UPWARD YEARNING: Clues to Our Transcendent Nature From Experience and Reason.
Since the early 20th century, scientific materialism has so undermined our belief in the human capacity for transcendence that many people find it difficult to believe in God and the human soul.
The materialist perspective has not only cast its spell on the natural sciences, psychology, philosophy and literature, it also has enthralled popular culture, which offers very little to encourage the “soul’s upward yearning.”
Ironically, the evidence for transcendence is greater today than in any other period in history.
In THE SOUL’S UPWARD YEARNING, Spitzer shows that we are transcendent beings with souls capable of surviving bodily death; that we are self-reflective beings aware of and able to strive toward perfect truth, love, goodness and beauty; and that we have the dignity of being created in the very image of God. If we underestimate these truths, we undervalue one another, underlive our lives and underachieve our destiny.
Dean Koontz, a No. 1 New York Times bestselling author, has provided glowing praise of THE SOUL’S UPWARD YEARNING: “An intellectual triumph. Those who think faith is a matter of emotion and self-delusion could not intelligently defend that position if they read this book with an open mind and comprehended its arguments. Magnificent.”
