Let us give a tremendous thank you to our choir members who sang in the Festival of Worship in LA on Sunday. They joined their voices with 1,000 other people from across the region to lift up praise to God in song. The featured music was composed and directed by John Rutter (a big favorite of our choir director, Julie Ramsey).
It was inspiring to see people of faith from many denominations come together for a worshipful experience. It’s a reminder that in spite of all of our differences there is in us all a need to praise and worship. We are more alike than different and the concert was a great witness to that truth.
The name of the concert was Dona Nobis Pacem, which means Lord, grant us peace. It was really easy to see how people coming together to offer praise is an instrument of peace-making.
So thank you to the choir and all who worked so hard in rehearsals to bring us reminders of hope and peace.
Grace and Peace,
