Audible Grace: Promise and Challenge in Congregational Song

Special Opportunity: May 23-25, 2014

The goal of this retreat is to cultivate an awareness and appreciation of sacramental dimensions in what we sing in worship, especially the ways congregational song awakens memory and hope.

Such connections with the past and the future engage us on many levels and offer both promise and challenge for shaping our faith and for leading us into paths of service and witness.

This retreat will be led by the Rev. Carl P. Daw, Jr., an American Episcopal priest who served at various parishes throughout the Eastern United States before he began work on hymns. He served on the committee that created the 1982 Episcopal hymnal, and served in a variety of roles related to sacred music. Now Curator of Hymnological Collections and Adjunct Professor of Hymnology at Boston University School of Theology, he previously was Executive Director of the Hymn Society in the United States and Canada from 1996-2009. In May 2011, he was named a Fellow of the Royal School of Church Music.
