The Mennonite, Inc., invites your original submissions for our July 2020 print magazine issue and corresponding online content focusing on Music and worship.
Description of the theme:
Music is an indelible part of Christian worship. Though a worship service may have many elements—prayer, preaching, confession, the Lord’s Supper—music, both vocal and instrumental, is uniquely powerful for many people. Worship among Mennonites and other Anabaptists takes myriad forms and includes a variety of musical styles, languages and theology. Music and worship fulfill many purposes: praising and thanking God, building unity among a gathered community, experiencing God’s presence and love in a deeper way. The Psalmist calls us to “make a joyful noise to [God] with songs of praise” (Psalm 95:2).
Submissions may consider one of the following prompts/questions, among others:
