Singing for Our Lives: Our Life of Faith, in Service for the Life of the World
Breakout 2 (10:30 AM – 11:45 AM) | Gratz Room 4F
These are times of crisis and challenge for our communities, for our nation, for billions of suffering people and for the very life of our planet. How do we respond (with the help of God’s Spirit) to the needs of the world in these desperate times?
As the source and summit of our life of faith, the experience of Sunday Eucharist provides the opportunity for strong “songlines” that connect our worship to the life of the world. Let’s explore how our personal faith journey can feed and be fed by the life of our community, helping us all to be God’s hands and feet to a world in need.

Cantare con todos los mundos/Sing with all the World
Breakout 6 (2:45 PM – 4:00 PM) | Gratz 4F
In this workshop, Marty gives rationale on why congregations need to sing music from around the world. In addition to singing joy and praise, global repertoire allows us to hear the voice of the oppressed and of those on the margins. Sing through a packet of octavos centering on music of the world Church and learn about a new global song project being developed by GIA.
