Tonya Maxwell of the Chicago Tribune published an excellent article today on the opening of a new and innovative church in Chicago. Not only is Tonya's article well-written, it also includes a scripture reference. I hope she submits it to the Amy Writing Awards for consideration. Here's a sample of her work:
Church born of faith and music
3 pastors bring plan to fruition in Pilsen
By Tonya Maxwell, Chicago Tribune staff reporter

The mountain has moved in Pilsen.

For months, three Protestant pastors have been using mesmerizing jazz fusion beats to capture the imaginations of Pilsen residents. They beat bongos and thumped bass at the tiny Cafe Mestizo on Ashland Avenue, creating camaraderie in music.

But always these young men of God had a plan for creating camaraderie in Christ though an informal, music-laden church service.

Great job, Tonya!
