Send it, Share it, and Sing it…Love it!
Dear Lutheran Songwriters and Worship Leaders:
It has been nearly a year since Lutheran songwriters gathered together to learn, pray, and sing together. A fellowship was nurtured in conversation, worship, and study. After many months of transition and change, I am pleased to announce the release of the Lutheran Songwriters’ Initiative through Concordia Publishing House. Fifteen sacramental songs have been selected to gift to The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Concordia Publishing House is pleased to release these at cph.org/songwriters. The complimentary audio CD “Singing the Sacraments of God” (item number 75-0213) may be ordered online as well.
These songs are available for churches and individuals to listen to and consider for their worship assembly. Downloadable lead sheets are also available at this web site. It is our ardent hope that the church will respond favorably and assist Concordia Publishing House in shaping for our church a song repertoire that is faithful to the Scriptures and the Lutheran confessions.
Future publishing paradigms are being considered wholeheartedly. Please share this news release with your songwriter friends and worship leaders. Help us shape the future together as one body in Christ. Many thanks for your perseverance and contribution to the life of the church.
