Music Making - Fall 2016 Highlights

Monday, August 29, 2016

Music is a powerful way in which we build community at this church. I invite you to raise your voice, your instrument and your heart with us this year!

“When the universe is polarized by hatred
When we ourselves have been baptized in fear
When some of us are paralyzed in principle
When there’s anger in the falling of each tear
Let us, let us rise in love Let us, let us rise in love”
—Ysaye M. Barnwell
