Swing Low, Sweet Chariot: Jazz, Justice, and the Journey of Tradition
Theodicy Jazz Collective is a group committed to making justice real through the creative, spiritual power of music. Part of that commitment is the teaching and sharing of ways to incorporate into our worship the jazz ideals of community, flexibility, and listening, to help the church thrive in our rapidly changing world. More information about them is available at http://theodicyjazz.com/
St. Andrew Lutheran Church, St. Saviour Episcopal Church, and The BTS Center (formerly Bangor Theological Seminary) are sponsoring a workshop with Theodicy Jazz Collective for worship leaders and church musicians, and others interested in jazz and/or worship, exploring jazz, justice, and the journey of tradition. We ask: how can we bring our worship into the creative tension between spontaneity and preparation, between structure and play? How do jazz ideals like listening, supporting, and improvising inform our understanding of Christian community?
In addition to the workshop, Theodicy Jazz Collective will offer a public conversation and concert of music inspired by jazz, blues, gospel, traditional hymns, and world music. This music is a constant prayer, sometimes a cry of joy, sometimes a shout for action, sometimes a deep, silent hope. It is truly soul music.
The workshop is Tuesday, October 1 at St. Andrew Lutheran Church,
The concert is Wednesday, October 2 at St. Saviour Episcopal Church,

101 REASONS TO BE EPISCOPALIAN
Our Eucharistic table is not made less special if all are invited, which is contrary to the understanding that I grew up with. Adjusting to the idea that everyone is invited to this most holy meal took me some time, but it has become one of the things I love most about the Church. Understanding that the true presence in the body of Christ is strong enough to survive inside someone who might seem less worthy requires more, not less, faith in its power. I am saddened that I cannot share in communion at my parents’ church, and that they will not receive in mine, but I would rather be in that position than the other way around.
