The Evangelism thru Music has become a regular feature or component of Diocesan Convention since 1997. Usually scheduled on the first night of Convention, it aims to entertain but more so, to inspire and prime the delegates for the next days of activities and sessions.

The Evangelism thru Music through the years has taken on many forms, from a chorale performance by several choirs, to a chorale concert by one choir, to a Hymn Festival by several groups, to a variety show, among others. Recently, the concept has evolved into a form of worship, where the liturgy is similar to that of the “Lessons and Carols”, which we do during Advent. This is the second year that the Evangelism thru Music has been done in the context of worship. Thus, the prayers, the collect as well as the blessing are based on the season; and the lessons and hymns revolve around the theme of Convention.

It was an amazing night indeed. Kudos to the Commission on Liturgics and Church Music & Culture (CLCMC) for leading this activity and for the different choirs led by their conductors for participating, a big bravo to all of you! Special gratitude too to the people who worked in making the liturgy for  this year and last year. May we all remain to be inspired to “Go to the World” in this season of Intentional Discipleship!!   (FADamaguen022019)
