Youth of the ELCSL are currently dreaming and working towards the goal of producing an album of original music for sale in Sierra Leone and beyond. Late last year they recorded two tracks for the album and are continuing to raise funds for this project.
This past weekend, some of the members of the Lutheran Youth Organization came together to create a music video featuring the theme song and title track for their project. They sang and danced and had an altogether fun time, at least for the time they spent outside my house in the ELCSL compound. The photos here are but a glimpse of the grace and energy of the Lutheran youth! While I was snapping still shots, Alfred Gorvie was directing and shooting video; he hopes to share the music and the finished video at the NTNL church assembly in April.
The theme song has great words, a great tune, and invites all hearers to start moving and dancing: “Let the Lutherans sing we are one in Christ, we are one, oo–ooh we are one!
