Featuring Rev. Bryan Sirchio

UCC minister, singer/songwriter, author, and Convergence Music Project CEO Bryan Sirchio will lead a fun, heart-warming and mind-expanding day.
Drawing from his critically acclaimed book, The 6 Marks of Progressive Christian Worship Music, we’ll sing, talk, and reflect on why worship music is so important and why the language, theology, and message of the songs we sing in worship have unique power to form us spiritually and inspire us to work toward the realization of God’s Dream of justice and Shalom for the world.  We’ll also learn about a new source of progressive worship music called The Convergence Music Project.
Learn more about Bryan and his music at www.sirchio.com.
