Go Down, Moses: Spirituals as a Resource for Preaching

The history of African American spirituals is interwoven with the history of preaching, yet these spirituals and their relationship to preaching usually receive little attention.

This workshop explored these spirituals as musical sermons that can serve as a resource for contemporary preaching. In particular, what the spirituals teach us about preaching as social witness.

Presented by Luke Powery at the 2013 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
