Jazz for the Journey, a national symposium on jazz as liturgy, will gather pastors, worship leaders, jazz musicians and jazz lovers from around the country to celebrate, share and explore the creative possibilities of jazz - and its power to speak to our existential situation and transform Christian worship.
This three-day event will feature leaders in the liturgical jazz movement sharing their perspectives on the music's impact on ministry, including the Rev. Geoffrey A. Black, the Rev. Dr. Ozzie Smith, the Rev. Dr. Henry Simmons, and the Rev. Dr. Dwight Andrews.
Sponsored by the United Church of Christ in collaboration with Trinity Cathedral (Episcopal Diocese of Cleveland) and Cleveland State University's Initiative for the Study of Religion and Spirituality in the History of Africa and the Diaspora (RASHAD)
