Nice Cooperation in Externals

From the LCMS, WELS, and ELS:


Children Making Music” is a new DVD that highlights music as a gift from God that can enrich life in the church and beyond. The video will be distributed in late August to all WELS churches, schools, and early childhood centers across the country. The DVD was developed by a committee of leaders and musicians from three Lutheran church bodies: The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), and the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS). 
"Children Making Music" creators expect the new DVD to strike a chord with a variety of viewers.  The 30-minute video is divided into three segments, with portions aimed at children, parents, and pastors and educators. 
 Rev. Paul Grime, who initiated the DVD project, hopes congregations will play the video at board meetings and Bible classes, for parent teacher associations and Sunday school students. “If the DVD is shown in just half our congregations and schools, and if it provides the needed encouragement to only a couple of students in each of those institutions, that would ultimately mean several thousand additional musicians who might one day be leading our congregations in song,” said Grime.

As congregations scramble to find trained musicians, this is a good and useful work. (sincerely)

Now, let's ponder how this "fellowshiping" could give the Boy Scouts a toehold... (sarcastically)

I'll reserve judgment until I hear reviews from some trained musicians who know something about sentics and can discern the difference between dionysian and apollonian music.
