Program: Thankful Beyond Understanding

The Rev. Ted LoderThe Rev. Dr. Theodore W. Loder was the senior pastor of First United Methodist Church of Germantown in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for 38 years. Through those years this racially and ethnically diverse metropolitan congregation maintained its membership of 1,000 members under Pastor Loderís leadership. In addition to Pastor Loderís commitment to a standard of excellence in preaching, creative liturgy and music, communicating the gospel in innovative, relevant and imaginative ways, and speaking and acting on critical issues of the city nation and world, his involvement in justice and peace missions is an accurate expression of what it means to love God and neighbor.

Pastor Loder is the author of many books including: My Heart in My Mouth: Prayers for our Lives; Guerillas of Grace: Prayers for the Battle; Tracks in the Straw; Loaves, Fishes, And Leftovers; The Haunt of Grace; and Wrestling the Light.
