A feast for the senses
STORIES FROM THE ROAD: ALCM Conference, Grace & Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kansas City, USA
Our studio was asked to join the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians Summer Conference being held at Grace & Holy Trinity Cathedral in Kansas City. The theme for the Region 3 event was titled Setting the Table Well and was designed for spiritual renewal of leaders and musicians. Over 100 people gathered for the three day event that focused on rethinking worship strategy to include the use of visual arts, choral and organ to connect with a multigenerational community. Our studio was invited to design and paint a prayer canvas to engage conference participants through an artistic spiritual practice that would transform individuals and build community in the process. The conference concluded with a closing worship service that included the prayer canvas. The service was arranged and performed by Dr. John Ferguson, Former Professor of Organ and Church Music at St. Olaf College.
