On Sunday, August 7, The Fulton First United Methodist Church will be hosting daily columnist/ humorist, Jonathan Richard Cring and master musician Janet Clazzy. The performance is at 9:45am; a morning of music and monologue, including readings from Mr. Cring’s book Digging for Gold (in the rule) with original musical tunes performed by Ms. Clazzy on the oboe and WX-5 Wind Machine.

Mr. Cring is the author of eleven books, including I’M. . .the legend of the son of man, 20 Other Reasons to Kiss a Frog, Jesonian, and Living a Legendary Life, a winner of a Billboard Music Award, recent recipient of the Best Screenplay Award at the Top Ten Films in America, and has a daily column at www.jonathots.com.

“Forty-nine minutes is all we have to give you music, humor, dialogue and some fresh insights about bringing creativity into our practical lives,” Mr. Cring shares from his home in Hendersonville,Tennessee. “The presentation is a delicate and delicious blending of spirit and humor that produces the wonderful by-product of good cheer.”

Ms. Clazzy has played oboe in orchestras for thirty years from coast to coast, including San Jose, Chicago, Shreveport and Houston. “I have this fabulous instrument called the WX-5 Wind Machine which gives me 250 sounds,” she says. “When you add some of the beautiful music and inspiring melodies, it just lends itself to an occasion to enrich the heart and exalt the spirit.” She is also the first female conductor in the state of Tennessee.

A love offering will be accepted and copies of books, CDs and DVDs of the movies will be available for purchase. The church is located at 1408 State Route 176 (Curtis St) in Fulton, directly across from the Fulton Junior High School, and is wheelchair accessible.
