To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Blue Grass Band

Two songs from Blue Grass Band musicians Rick Curtis (on mandolin) and Dick Hickman (on guitar):
“In Christ There Is No East or West”

“I Am the Good Shepherd”

A note on this music …
Once a year we move from the 1982 Hymnal to accompany the Service of Holy Eucharist with American Roots music – Bluegrass.
You will hear all the same themes you hear in our more “formal” hymns:  joy, sorrow, praise, lament, hope, entreaty, and even (in Peter, Paul and Mary’s iconic “Woman at the Well”) disdain and disbelief turned to amazed recognition.
If your mind is having a difficult time accepting this as valid liturgical music, we ask you to listen with your heart.
