Jaroslav Vajda, author of “Now the Silence” and hundreds of other hymn texts, is considered by many to be one of the most important hymn writers of the twentieth century. He was born in Lorain, OH one hundred years ago, and we will celebrate his legacy at this event. Presenters include Tom Leeseburg-Lange, who was a frequent collaborator with Vajda and is now writing his biography, and Stephen Starke, one of today’s leading Lutheran hymn writers. Also featured at this conference is the brand new Paul Fritts pipe organ at First Lutheran. The day will begin at 9:00 and conclude with a public hymn festival at 2:30.
