2017 Owen Lenten Lecture Series: Lecture Audio


Featuring Rev. Mike Baughman, Founding Pastor and Community Curator of Dallas’ Union Coffee

In the gospel of Luke, Simeon claims that Jesus arrives to disturb the peace “so that the inner thoughts of many will be revealed.” Together we will explore the ways Jesus may disturb our peace in Holy Week to reveal the inner thoughts of our culture, the church and ourselves.

Rev. Mike Baughman is the Community Curator and founding pastor for Union Coffee (a church inside a coffee shop). The editor for Flipping Church (2016), Mike is eager to encounter and support those on the innovative edge of church, non-profit and civic engagement. He has served as author, editor and developer for a long list of curricula through Sparkhouse Press and Cokesbury. Mike learned a lot about basketball while attending Duke University and then earned a couple of pretentious diplomas from Princeton Theological Seminary (they’re both in Latin and hang in his garage).  A third generation Methodist minister and church planter, Mike married a sixth generation Methodist minister, Rachel.  Mike is no stranger to LLUMC, having preached many times in our Crosswalk and Thrive Services.
