Juneau church to host workshop

JUNEAU - The Juneau Church of the Nazarene will host a workshop on "Music and Cross-Cultural Communication" from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12.

The class will be taught by former Juneau resident Cory Cummins, who now works with Wycliffe Bible Translators in Oklahoma. Cummins travels the country encouraging people to worship God in the form of music. Church of the Nazarene Pastor Bob Sherwood said Cummins works in ethnomusicology - tapping into the heart music of a people, to "reach them most effectively with the message of God's word in song."

The course will cover four topics: music as a universal language; enthnomusicology and the role music plays in cultures; making sense of music; and how to encourage others to use music to find God.

Cost for the workshop is $5. Coffee and tea will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring a boxed lunch. The Church of the Nazarene requests that participants R.S.V.P. at 789-2724.
