“A Way Forward” | Misty Ann Sturm | connect.faith
Misty Ann Sturm brought two of her friends and fellow musicians Sara Caswell (violin) and Alex Brown (piano) together for a special concert called “Steal Away: Songs of Faith & Inspiration”. We are resharing three of these pieces of music over 5 years later and find that they provide the same faith, inspiration and hope all these years later. Interspersed is a conversation between Pastor Debbie and Misty in which they discuss how these songs speak to our theme, “A Way Forward.”
- “Swing Low” African American Spiritual, arr. Ike Sturm
- “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel by Rogers and Hammerstein
- “The Prayer” David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa and Tony Renis
