Sowing Seeds, Bearing Fruit

Friday greetings from a very soggy Chicago. This is the first real rain we have had in quite some time. My apologies for not having posted yesterday; the air conditioning system in our building here began to fail at about 2:00 P.M. as the thermometer reached 100 degrees! Quite a day.

OK, my musician friends, have I got a recommendation for you. A few years ago, Jennifer Kerr Breedlove (author of WLP's Sight-Sing a New Song) came to us with a proposal for a new book. With over twenty years of experience as a music director, she thought she could put some of that experience and expertise at the service of the wider Church.

Her newest book with WLP just hit the shelves this week.

Sowing Seeds, Bearing Fruit: A Five-Year Process for Growing a Singing Congregation is Jennifer's latest contribution to assist those in music ministry. Using the metaphor of the garden, Jennifer leads the reader through her five-year process. This book is inspiring and practical and is obviously based on solid pastoral experience. Great for the new music director and the more seasoned musicians among us.

I hope that your weekend is a good one and that your Sunday celebrations bring you closer to the Lord.

Gottta sing. Gotta pray.
