Choir Retreat: Tumekuja Kuimba (We Have Come to Sing)

MUSIC-ministry Header 2018

Tumekuja Kuimba

One of the joys of living in Houston is our diverse community. Within five minutes of my house I can dine on any cuisine I wish. My neighborhood is a tapestry of peoples from many corners of the world. It’s truly wonderful.

Our Sunday worship services are just as diverse. Singing the songs of Christians from other countries connects us to those international people who have become part of our Sunday morning family. At no time is this more evident that on World Communion Sunday.

In 2018, World Communion Sunday occurs on October 7. Take a listen below to Tumekuja Kuimba, the wonderful anthem composed from songs heard in Nairobi, Kenya. The composer writes . . .

“African music never stands still. In North America, we go to places to sing: school, church, theater. In Africa, you sing on the way to somewhere. It’s a journey, not a destination.”

Come join us as we “sing on the way to somewhere” . . . the Chancel Choir will still be meeting this coming Saturday, July 21 from 8:00 AM – 10:30 AM. Make plans to attend the retreat . . . and plan to enter through the Groom’s Room entrance/Music Reception Area.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Join in the Dance
This exciting and uplifting setting of Psalm 65 was composed for the installation of a new Methodist bishop. The theme for the service of installation was focused on dancing to the heartbeat of God. Click here to listen.
