During the combined Sunday School time on Sunday morning, June 12, we will be “singing our story”—sharing different aspects of our Music Ministry. In Walter Brueggemann’s life and work, he mentions three antidotes to despair in regular practices of disciplines in our faith: 1) Tell sustaining stories. 2) Pray without ceasing. 3) People of faith sing defiant songs.

We have a long-standing tradition of a strong Music Ministry here, and an important part of that is congregational singing. Singing together can move us from isolation to community, can teach us about the Bible, about our faith, and can hopefully lift us out of ourselves into hope, joy and peace. We will sing some, discuss why we sing, and hear shared stories from people involved in various areas of our music ministry.

In From Glory into Glory, Susan Palo Cherwien says:

Music can, like story, form community.

Our singing together knits us into a seamless garment

shaped and formed by the loving God

and God’s extravagantly loving acts.

We are shaped by the story we sing;

we are woven together by the act of singing praise together.

Please join us Sunday morning, shaping the story of our community in song!
