With the goal of uniting in harmony for peace in our troubled world, students from Goshen College (Indiana, USA) organized “Sing for Peace: a Hymn Marathon.” Students, faculty, staff and community members gathered on 14 November and sang continuously for over 30 hours through every verse of every one of the 658 songs in Hymnal: A Worship Book. With individuals and congregations pledging money per hymn, the effort raised over $10,000 for CPT. “What a good thing! What a good cause!” remarked participant Lois Seitz Kreider. The event sparked solidarity hymn sings in other colleges, congregations and communities which raised hundreds more.
CPT is honored and grateful to benefit from such glorious harmoney.
