Event description: 

When Dancing Turns to Mourning: Worshiping God in the Face of Violence

Visit the conference website HERE.

An ecumenical conference for pastors, musicians, other church leaders and interested laypeople


Amid today’s media-driven awareness and widespread fear, how do the worship, music, and art of the church make public witness to the human pain violence brings and to God’s presence with those who suffer in its wake?  In the face of violence, how can the worship, music, and art of Christian congregations offer praise to God, and how can they bring courage to those who are anxious, help to those who are suffering, and long-term formation in ways of peace?
