Sacrifice with Shouts of Joy, a meditative on Psalm 27, reminds us that as young adults we don't have to be afraid of living in a dark, lost world because the LORD is our light, giving us direction and filling us with faith, hope, and love. The song emphatically calls faith to action reflecting David’s words from the Psalm and echoing his earnest plea,
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. -Psalm 27:4
Koiné is looking forward to participating in the the seventh triennial WELS Worship Conference, July 22-25, 2014 at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. The WELS Worship Conference is the largest Lutheran worship conference in North America.
Our friend and artist Jason Jaspersen will also be attending the 2014 WELS International Worship Conference to showcase some of his work. If you're a fan of Koiné, you may already be familiar with his work with the Emmanuel Lux album artwork, or the sand art and animation he has done for live performances and to accompany/compliment our music.
Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending (Sand Art - LIVE)
A Son, Emmanuel (Stop Motion Animation)
Jason shares his thoughts on the conference,
This will be my third time and I'm excited for an environment of Christian fellowship, diverse worship experiences, and excellent presenters.
Jason will have a collection of work on sale at the conference, and of course, we encourage you to check it out and if you are so moved, to support his work by taking some home. Be sure and visit his site or his blog to check out more of his work.
