I am your host, Benjamin Brody, and I am pleased to welcome you to this inaugural episode of our podcast in which we will explore the depth and breadth of congregational singing and congregational song.


I believe that the most important musical activity that happens in church is congregational singing.


We believe that the holy act of singing together shapes faith, heals brokenness, transforms lives, and renews peace.


…a podcast that is 1) broadly and unapologetically ecumenical in scope, 2) focused specifically on congregational singing, and 3) bringing together voices who serve a variety of roles – theologians, pastors, musicians, as well as writers of music and words for singing in worship.

    I am so excited for this podcast. Ben leads music at my church, and I have been immeasurably enriched in faith and life by the songs we sing together as a congregation. I will be eagerly awaiting upcoming episodes.
