Russian Sacred Music, Chancel Choir Concert

Sunday, March 8, 7pm

The Chancel Choir, with soloists Cynthia Shepherd, Magdalena Wór, and Stephen Ozcomert perform music of the Russian Orthodox Church and art songs by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, accompanied by Misha Stafanuk and Timothy Albrecht. Russian liturgical music embodies a spirituality so profound that, with ears to hear, one may perceive the very presence of God. Amid the current situation with Russia and Ukraine, and the concomitant tensions with the West, the Chancel Choir offers this music as a prayer for greater understanding and peace. The concert is one hour and free. Everyone is welcome.

Meet the Author: Ann J. Temkin

Wednesday, March 18, 6:30pm
Following Wednesday Night Supper at 5:30pm, all are welcome for our Main Stage Program: Meet the Author with Ann J. Temkin - sharing about her book, Sight In The Sandstorm: Jesus in His World and Mine. 
Ann J. Temkin is half Jewish, half Gentile, a former Catholic nun and ordained Protestant minister. Sight in the Sandstorm illustrates the power of an extravagantly loving God, a God on the loose in the whole world then and now. Jesus and his companions come to life within the rich context of turbulent 1st century Palestine. The political, socio-economic and religious conditions of the Jewish people living under Roman rule provide moving and meaningful insight into Jesus, his life, and his teachings. Stories from the author’s life are intertwined as the combination proclaims a message transcending time and place about human struggle against oppression and a path to liberation.
