Ken Medema: Pre-Service Concert

Sunday, January 19, 2020
10:45 am – 11:00 am

"Conversations Around Justice"

Singer/Songwriter/Pianist Ken Medema will be our featured guest in Worship as Dr. Bos preaches on Justice: The Other Side of Love. The morning will include a 10:45am Mini-Concert by Ken Medema in the Sanctuary, and a “Sing-Back” with Ken for 30 minutes immediately following Worship. All are encouraged to remain in the Sanctuary for this session called Conversations Around Justice, which will be a time of storytelling from congregants’ own struggles and encounters with prejudice and oppression, followed by Ken spontaneously setting those stories to music.

Though Ken Medema has been unable to see with his physical eyes, his inner vision and profound music carry a prophetic vision for the world today. Starting his career as a music therapist, in 1973 Ken launched his international performing career, electrifying audiences with his dazzling improvisations, reframing of Biblical stories, and his deeply emotional connection with everyone on their spiritual and human journey. Today, Medema performs in a wide variety of venues, from local congregations to charity fundraisers, to high school and university campuses, to denominational youth gatherings, to universally televised religious programs, to corporate conventions, to annual assemblies of national organizations.
