Time After Pentecost — Lectionary 22 (Year B)

Any number of things can put a song on one's lips. On Sing For Joy, this week, it is the beauty of the earth, and far more as well, that leads choirs, congregations, and the human heart to sing. Whether you simply listen or spontaneously sing along, we'll be glad to have you join us.
