We are Celebrating Our Story. Our Universal story and our specific stories. As civilizations rose and fell, the remnants of the culture they left behind were in the form of stories & art. The power of story is real. Stories preserve community and family culture. They can also renew an individual’s connection with their Creator and their identity in this world. Stories are what keep us connected together in our churches, families & communities. No matter what communities we come from, we all share the common story of Creation & the Creator.
We are Celebrating Song. Did you know that a culture of singing is what freed the entire nation of Estonia? After Stalin took over the Baltic States in 1939/1940, the people lost their freedom to celebrate their cultural singing festivals. After 50 years, they began overcoming their fears and gathering to sing their cultural songs. This gave them more and more courage to stand against their oppressors and grew to a point where they stood, hand-in-hand, in 1991, against the tanks, singing. The world saw this on the news and it was the first time we in the West understood what had been happening those 50 years after WWII. Singing is powerful!! And through a simple song, we can learn a powerful message. We often sing hymns and those hymns encourage and uplift us. For this Celebration, we, the audience, will be singing a few beautiful folk songs.
