Mennonite Church Canada is putting together a virtual choir for Gathering 2022, and you are invited to join.
The choir will record “Greater Things Than These,” a song that Winnipeg pastor and songwriter Phil Campbell-Enns composed for the event.
The song starts with a reflection on Jesus’ birth before meditating on the notion that Canadian Mennonites worship on land that was stolen from Indigenous peoples. The song invites healing and includes a refrain sung from God’s perspective: “Come and see how my love can bring you peace / Come and see how my truth can set you free / Follow me, there is still more to reveal / I will do greater things than these; come and see.”
Anyone wishing to participate in the virtual choir can download the music and the instructions for how to submit a recording here. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, March 1.
Gathering 2022 will take place in Edmonton from July 29 to Aug. 1.
