iGod: The Blues
Virginia-Highland Church continued its sermon series “iGod: Downloading Tunes from Heaven” on Sunday, July 2, by singing the blues. Beginning in the Mississippi Delta from the field songs and spirituals of the slaves, the blues are the origin of protest songs. Guest preacher Rev. Beverly Friedlander, a member of our congregation, helped us explore how God is still speaking through this deeply emotional genre of music.
Please use the links to the right and above to watch and/or comment. Please forgive the faulty microphone at the beginning of the recording. It comes on permanently around the 2:22 mark. To help fill in the blanks, we have posted a draft of the sermon, which also can be accessed at the links above.
