“Joy Inside My Tears” at Calvin College’s Chapel

Paul Ryan periodically asks me to speak/sing at Calvin’s chapel. On January 14, 2019 my theme was “Joy Inside My Tears,” in which I explored the paradoxes of the Christian’s emotional life in scripture and song. Just in case you don’t want to listen raptly to all 20+ minutes, here is the outline:

  • Prelude: “Joy Inside My Tears” from Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life
  • 2:00 Blah, blah, blah
  • 3:15 We Worship You (Scheer)
  • 7:00 More blah, blah, blah
  • 10:20 Psalm 30: I Worship You, O Lord (text: Seddon/Seerveld, tune: Norman L. Warren) A new jazz arrangement written especially for this chapel.
  • 15:00 Expanded blah, blah, blah
  • 23:50 Psalm 126: All Those Who Are Weeping (a beautiful song by Bifrost Arts)
  • Postlude: “People’s Parties” from Joni Mitchell’s Court and Spark
