Polphony
: a musical composition with two or more voices
or parts, each with an independent melody
: consisting of many voices or sounds

Words are powerful. We use them to share ideas, to voice feelings and concerns, to connect with each other. Words are easy to misunderstand. They can harm as well as help. The same word can convey different meanings to different persons in different situations. The same word spoken by many voices can create confusion and build barriers. In these sermons, we work to “remaster” some common words we use as Christians. For some, their meaning has been distorted by disparate voices and damaging use. Join us as we reclaim these words – for good.

Faith Remastered

remaster -  to make a new copy of a musical recording or film with the sound or image improved

The master copy of a composition is the original version.  Now, with the aid of technology, musical recordings and films can be remastered.  Often the remastered versions reveal new depth, clarity, and richness of color and tone. Remastering enlivens enjoyment of classics by those who have long cherished them and makes them available and accessible to new listeners and viewers.

This year at Foundry, we will play with the concept of remastering as we return to the classics of our faith tradition.  We will examine the core teachings and tenets of Christian faith – stories from scripture, worship practices, theological concepts, and dynamics of covenant relationship. Together, we will pick up these powerful stories and practices, dust them off, and consider them afresh as resources for our journey. The language of music and melody will weave throughout the year as we deepen and renew our living faith.
