Singing Our Savior's Story: Songs for Congregations, Choirs and Worship Teams

This seminar explores a rich variety of music that reflects deeply on the life of Jesus, and it is appropriate for any service based on one of the four New Testament gospels, including some songs that focus on "telling the story," others that are adept at "unpacking the meaning of the story," and still others that "help us see ourselves taken up into the story."

Examples include historic texts by Watts and Wesley, music from African-American, Asian, Latino, and Anglo contexts appropriate for use in both contemporary and traditional contexts. The leaders and the audience came together to transcend stylistic divides as they focused their attention on the life-giving ministry of Jesus.
