Aired 2005-06. Presented by the National Council of Churches USA Joy to the World is a joyful mixture of music and praise featuring several choirs and congregations that celebrate the cultural diversity within the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Tune in to see and hear pastors, choir directors and church members demonstrate how worship in their congregations reflects their cultural heritage within the context of the Lutheran Church.
We will visit some of the ELCA's culture-specific congregations including American Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian, African American, and Latino. Through choir performance, liturgical dance, and conversations with church leaders you will learn the importance of music and cultural diversity to faith practice, enjoy a variety of music, and gain insight into the commonalities and differences among these ELCA-based, culturally diverse congregations.
