Join us this Sunday for morning worship at 9 a.m., and 11:15 a.m. to hear my message "Coming Home" as we continue the sermon series "Light at the End of the Tunnel" in the book of Luke.
Last week we kicked off a special four-part-series Simple Gifts: Faith & the Arts with acclaimed pianist Ken Medema. You heard me say in my video last week, as an urban church in the heart of the city, we have a special responsibility, calling, and joy to lift up the importance of the arts. The arts and our faith together can take us to a special place that words alone cannot take us. This week, I invite you to come back at 5:45 p.m. for part two, as we host “Composer Conversations with Michael Kurth and Jesse Breite”. Out of a friendship formed at NAPC, composer, Michael Kurth, and poet, Jesse Breite, have spent the last number of years creating music and text that reflect themes you might expect to come from pulpit rather than the choir loft.
Come hear a conversation with the artists about their creative process, deep faith, and what it is like to present these to the public. We will be treated to hearing the recently debuted recording of “Miserere” performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Chorus featuring Grammy-winning mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor. The world premiere of “Miserere” took place from March 22–24 at Symphony Hall. Click the photo below to watch a special promo video of "Miserere" in anticipation for Sunday's "Composer Conversations." I encourage you to bring a friend to this unique listening time and Q&A here in the Sanctuary. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
Your pastor and friend,
