Episode Description:

Jim Lehman - Author, Historian, Story Teller, Mentor - Part 2
Hosted By: Brent Carlson

Jim Lehman, author of "The Old Brethren" was born into the Church of the Brethren in Lancaster County, PA and serves in the Highland Avenue congregation in Elgin, Illinois.
Jim developed a deep interest in Brethren history and recognized a calling to be a writer after authoring "The Old Brethren." This edition of "Brethren Voices" allows Jim to discuss writing and storytelling and features one of Jim's favorite stories about the beginnings of Brethren Volunteer Service.

This is a unique story about the youth of the church with the leadership of Dan West who brought the idea of a volunteer service program for young adults to the 1948 Church of the Brethren Annual Conference. The conference passed the business item unanimously following a spirited presentation by Ted Chambers. The story was presented by Jim at a a Brethren Song & Story Fest.

"Song and Story Fest," sponsored by On Earth Peace and directed by Ken Kline Smeltzer in now in its 16th year. It was greatly influenced by Jim Lehman who felt that writing and story telling should be included in this special event. This intergenerational family camp is attended by approximately 150 Brethren each summer for those interested in music, writing, and story telling.
