RSS: Music in Worship: Honoring One Another

Session Description

In 2016, the members of three Seattle-area Churches, one predominantly African American, one predominantly Chinese American, and one predominantly white, began building intentional relationships with one another. In the process, their choirs explored ways to work together and ways to serve each other. By sharing leadership and combining their resources, they found ways to honor one another’s cultures through music. Come hear the story from some of the directors involved and learn how you can build similar relationships between choirs in your community.
