The Judson University Choir traveled to Iowa and Illinois over the weekend as part of our annual fall tour. I didn’t have much time to write, so I’ll plan to continue the series of reflections on worship in the contemporary American church next week. In the meantime, here’s a song that we’ve sung since 2012, a song of hope that never gets old, though we have sung it every concert for six solid years. May this wonderful song of assurance, from a concert in 2017 (the most recent professional video footage we have of the song), be a blessing to you.
“I Will Rise” (Tomlin, et al.) — The Judson University Choir
The Lord be with you!
