I was running and listening to a new song by the band known as Bellarive. Shawn (a vocalist in the band) plays with the Overflow worship team sometimes. He’s a gifted young man and we’re grateful for his life shared with us. One of our worship leaders, Jessica Davis led us on Saturday night in this anthem and we sang it again at the Overflow service. I was thinking, what if we added to these voices? We talked it over and decided to repurpose old-school choir for an new generation. It may not look like it used to with robes, standing in neat lines, but each voice will carry the weight of a life, just as it has for generations.
We want to mobilize and empower 100 diverse young voices to sing, as living witnesses of the truth in these words–words that are timeless and eternal. We want the choir to open our school year and to serve as banner wavers of hope in our community this fall. If you want to join, you can sign up here. We’ll be singing, A Taste of Eternity and the choir will also be recording a song with Jessica on her new album. I love when God brings fresh wind to our lungs and a vision for the future. It’s exciting to be apart of eternity, today.
