A Buried Treasure on the Nebraska Prairie
St. John and Concordia-Seward are to be commended for bringing together a stellar group of people to present on a variety of topics related to worship and music for the triennial Worship and Music Conference (formerly sponsored by the Commission on Worship). Somewhere just below 400 Pastors, parish musicians, and lay folk from Manitoba to Texas, California to New York, gathered July 27-29. I was privileged to lead a couple of different sessions, to work with Seward's very fine Music Department Chair, Joe Herl, and to sit in the seats while others presented. I was very much impressed with the caliber of folk, with the serious intention of those who plan and lead worship and the church's song, and with the facilities at Seward.
If you missed it, you really did miss something grand. If you missed it, you should pay attention to what is to come in a couple of years as (I hope and pray) this wonderful conference begins its next chapter...
