On Sunday, May 1 at 11:30 am, nine people came together to make some folk music at Lutheran Church of the Incarnation (LCI) shortly after its 9:30am worship service and 10:30 education and coffee hour. Many brought instruments: guitars and ukuleles could be seen, there was a piano and many voices. Each brought their own favorite folk songs to share with the others, and the group quickly caught on, singing Irish folk tunes, classics like “Shenandoah”, “This Land is your Land”, “Blowin’ in the Wind”, “If I had a Hammer” and many others.
It was a moment to share something deeply needed among this fellowship of friends, and perhaps in our world today: unity through the healing power of the arts. “Sunday Jams” is a tradition that will continue at LCI: the next jam session will be Sunday May 22 at 12:00 noon, playing the music of the Beatles. All are welcome! LCI is at 1701 Russell Blvd. Davis, 95616 (corner of Russell & Arthur, just west of 113).
Bring an instrument if you like, or just your voices and enthusiasm! If you have a Beatles song you would like played, please bring copies of the lyrics on one sheet with chords so the instrumentalists have something to play. (Questions? Contact Pastor Dan Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.) See you soon - and happy singing!
