May the God of hope fill you with all joy . . . Romans 15:13
I’m excited to invite all in our diocesan community, to UpBeat: A Joyful Night of Jazz and Spoken Word. On Friday, January 26th, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m, we’ll gather at Washington National Cathedral for an evening of inspiring music, good food, and courageous story telling. This is a diocesan gathering whose sole purpose is for all to experience joy.
We’ll be led in song by Afro Blue, Howard University’s premier vocal group. Atlanta-based priest and social activist, the Rev. Kim Jackson will guide us through an evening of sharing faith stories, allowing us all to give voice to the transforming power of God’s grace and love.
Couldn’t we all use more joy in 2018? What better way to experience joy than through uplifting music and conversation in our amazingly beautiful Cathedral? For those of us who will return to the Cathedral for Diocesan Convention on Saturday, January 27, UpBeat will remind us how blessed we are to be part of this incredible diocesan community.
Invite your friends. I promise you’ll be glad you came.
All students get in free. For the rest of us, it’s $15 if we pre-register (it would help us in ordering food if you sign up online) or $20 at the door.
