"Global Christian Song"
A Presentation by Dr. Douglas Reed
Monday, September 14,
In 2007, the University of Evansville
awarded Dr. Reed a
Global Scholar Grant for the 2007-2008 academic year. The subject of
his research was "Global Christian Song." The grant supported
purchase of printed materials and travel to Korea, the Iona Community
in Scotland, and several East European countries including Hungary,
Romania, Bulgaria, and Greece. This presentation will exploree
music which according to Dr. Reed "broadens our perspectives and puts
us in touch with other Christians around the world...(and) shines a new
and different light on the 'worship wars' between 'traditional' and
'contemporary' approaches in America."
For our September program, our Evansville A.G.O. chapter will
gather for a meal beforehand in the new student union on the University
campus at 6:00 p.m. (each person will order and pay for their own
meal), and then attend Dr.
Reed's presentation at 7:00pm to enjoy
and learn from recordings, pictures, and group singing. The
program will be in Neu Chapel on the University of
Evansville campus. Contact Douglas Reed if you have any
questions at email@example.com.
