I Am Foundry: Voices in Harmony

I Am Foundry: Voices in Harmony

har·mo·ny - ˈhärmənē - noun

  1. the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords and chord progressions having a pleasing effect.
  2. agreement or concord.

 What does it mean to say, “I am Foundry?” It is a claim of identity, connection, and contribution. “I” is singular, “Foundry” is plural. “Voices” is plural and “Harmony” blends the plural into a singular, unified sound. As we share life in community—offering our energies, skills, and resources, our unique voices join together to create the particular song that is “Foundry.” To say “I am Foundry” is affirmation that every gift, every offering, every person, every voice, is used by God to create the extraordinary “harmony” that is this beloved community. Throughout this series, we will reflect on John Wesley’s “Directions for Singing” as we consider how our voices in harmony and all our contributions truly make Foundry…Foundry.

2017-2018 Theme: 

Faith Remastered

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.
