All Creation Sings, a new hymn and liturgy supplement to Evangelical Lutheran Worship, was released in late 2020. This resource of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America brings together a wide range of cultural, ethnic, generational, and theological perspectives in its liturgical settings, prayers, and two hundred hymns and songs. This webinar will specifically address the assembly song of the resource with several sung examples, noting themes highlighted in the resource as well as diverse musical styles. Join us as we explore how this new worship and song resource encourages our joining the song of all creation.
