The community is invited to join the Calvin Symposium on Worship conference participants in this evening of singing and praying the psalms led by Wendell Kimbrough. Wendell is a songwriter who re-imagines the Psalms for emotionally honest modern worship. His songs are marked by strong singable melodies, steeped in the sounds of folk, gospel, and soul music. Wendell serves as artist-in-residence and worship leader at Church of the Apostles in Fairhope, Alabama. His recent albums are Come to Me (2018) and Psalms We Sing Together (2016).
Come to Me, gathers together psalms of lament, cries for justice, and shouts of deliverance. “It’s the soundtrack I needed in 2017, a year in which I found myself leading people in worship after terror attacks, white supremacist rallies, and church shootings,” Wendell says. “The Psalms invite us to be honest with God about the crazy highs and lows we experience. ‘Come to me,’ Jesus says, ‘bring your burdens, bring your heaviness.’”
