Good Courage Farm and Music that Makes Community invite you to a Community SING honoring Endangered Species Day on Friday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m. The evening of participatory singing will be facilitated by Conie Borchardt, Kerri Meyer, and Paul Vasile.
When we sing, we connect with one other and with something larger than our individual selves — whether it’s community or the Sacred. Join us for this uplifting experience of learning and collaboration, as we share songs from varied musical and spiritual traditions that invite us to care for our fragile Earth and all the creatures that find a home here, especially those who are endangered or threatened.
The event is free and open to all who love to sing, regardless of musical experience or training. Freewill donations are welcome and help support the work of Good Courage Farm and Music that Makes Community.
Good Courage Farm is the faith-filled response of the Rev. Kerri Meyer and Dr. Jen Blecha to the call of the Holy Spirit to join in the renewal of God's good earth and to follow Christ's example of feeding all who hunger. The farm uses organic and increasingly-regenerative methods to grow lots of perennial food crops. The 18-acre farmstead is home to chickens, ducks, goats and a few stray peafowl, as well as to myriad nations of other creatures - songbirds, frogs, snakes, grasshoppers, bats and more. The barn, built in 1927, houses worship services and fellowship events. We sing morning and evening prayer in our silo chapel. The Well House offers a quiet space for individuals on spiritual retreat.
Connected to the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, and located on the ancestral homelands of our Wahpekute and Mdewakanton neighbors (read our land acknowledgement and our commitment to reparations), Good Courage Farm is a place where neighbors of all faiths and none gather to work for food justice and to witness God’s renewing love for all of Creation. At Good Courage, friends of God and God's good Earth gather in worship, fellowship, community building and labor. We are blessed to be in partnership with Episcopal Church in Minnesota and the larger faith-based food and agriculture movement. Embedded in the beauty, abundance and travail of farming, Good Courage offers hospitality and space for service, sacrament and sabbath.
