Time After Pentecost — Lectionary 20 (Year B)

Much art in European and American museums depicts scenes and stories from the Bible. The same is true of the great library of music. Each week on Sing For Joy, you hear such music; sometimes powerful enough to stop you in your tracks, other times gentle enough to calm your anxiety; always offered to feed the soul. Join us.
