Small Group Rehearsals Have Begun!

Rehearsals begin for Hope & Reconciliation Event
We have begun the many small group rehearsals needed for our singers and musicians to prepare for this Night of Hope & Reconciliation: For the City. Through the Arts this October 1st, 7pm (with Art Opening beginning at 6pm). Here is a pic from one of our small group rehearsals. You would not believe the humility and camaraderie among these groups of community-minded artists and musicians as they have come together to give of themselves for something greater than themselves! We are touching on everything from out-of-print spirituals to the likes of Duruflé, as well as pieces written by folks in our community. These songs and this project have not only served as catalysts to facilitate collaboration across the disciplines and genres of the arts (including dance, visual arts, and spoken word), they have already facilitated new relationships and new ways of working together outside of our traditional and ‘comfortable’ boundaries. And do you know what? Our times together have been infused with JOY!

Please continue to pray into this event and into these relationships: that we would discover more and more the joys that go hand in hand with going low in humility to serve one another in our preparations & collaborations. That we would ‘abound in love,’ and that the Lord would “make our love increase and overflow for each other … and strengthen our hearts.” (1 Thes. 3-12).

We do hope that you will join us for this Night of Hope & Reconciliation: For the City. Through the Arts. October 1st, at Christ Community Church, Charlottesville, VA., 7pm (Art Opening and light refreshments at 6pm) Ticket info and availability here.
