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
There’s no such thing as a politically incorrect Episcopalian. There are conservative Episcopalians and liberal Episcopalians. There are straight Episcopalians and LBGT Episcopalians. There Catholics and Protestants. There are African, English, Asian, and Alaskan Episcopalians. And none of the above. The Episcopal Church doesn’t offer you set dogma or pat answers, or a list of do’s and don’ts. There’s room for all kinds of people and all kinds of theologies. What the Episcopal Church does offer you is a way of prayer, a way of thinking and asking questions, a way of life in this often confusing, conflicting, and complicated world, a way that may lead you closer to God.
