Songs of Transformation, Reformation, and Liberation: The Power of Music to Shape Congregational Life
Singing Can Transform Community
As we look to songs of the past and music of today, what do they have to teach us about the power of music to shape congregational life, especially our worship? Join us for a lively time of singing and reflection, as we:
explore how embodied song leadership helps strengthen and liberate voices;
reflect on community singing as a practice that forms and transforms identity through listening and collaboration;
offer practical teaching strategies useful for teaching music in worship, choir rehearsals, and other community contexts;
share music from a tapestry of cultures and musical traditions with expansive, inclusive language for God and God's people.
