GOSPEL FEST NOURISHES
If there is something therapeutic
about praise and worship, the College experienced a time of tremendous
spiritual refreshment on Saturday, March 1 when the Organization of African
American Unity sponsored Gospel Fest in the Ozinga Chapel.
"We had a great evening just
praising the Lord," said Myron Graham, president of OAAU. "You could feel
the joy and enthusiasm as the choirs sang glory to God. I believe He was
very pleased with our worship."
At OAAU's invitation, choirs
from North Central College and Thornwood, Thornridge, Curie, and Oak Park-River
Forest high schools joined Trinity's gospel choir for the concert. The
riveting, soulful selections highlighted the best of contemporary and traditional
music that is a staple of worship in African American culture.
"Each choir did a tremendous
job," said Felecia Thompson, Trinity's director of academic support and
services who also sings in a Christian choir based in Chicago. "The worship
was powerful and uplifting, and I sensed that those who attended walked
away inspired and rejuvenated."
