… a very upbeat and bluesy AMEN is how we finished an amazing day of growing together.
The choirs of Cadboro Bay United and Oak Bay United churches joined forces for a full day of singing and sharing.
We worked hard and challenged our voices to sing a range of styles with and without printed music. We discussed our role in music ministry and workshopped several new anthems. My thanks to our Oak Bay UC choir, my colleague Christine Chepyha and the choir of Cadboro Bay UC for their enthusiastic participation.
My most memorable learning (among many) of the day was: community is something we create together, it comes from shared experiences, trust and a desire to grow … our ministry of music can be our vehicle for building community.
