Individual performers or church choirs are invited to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord“ Friday at a Psalm sing event at the Atrium Mall downstaris center stage starting at 6 p.m.
“The event is just for people to get together and sing and worship their Creator, to express their joy that we’re moving on as a people, as a nation, as a state, as a county, as a city,” Native Nations Chaplains Alliance Chaplain G. Bruce Meyers said. “We are expressing thankfulness, joy, gladness and gratefulness to the Creator, to the Creator God.”
Meyers also is a Republican candidate for the state Legislature, challenging Rep. Jonathan Windy Boy, D-Box Elder, in the race for the seat representing House District 32.
People who have questions can contact Meyers at 399-7776 and Sheila Forshee at 262-4842 to register.
Meyers said it is primarily a Christian event, but everyone is welcome.
It is the same as having a powwow, he said, people would be free to worship in the way they choose
He said at the powwows they sing and express themselves, create joy and life.
The event is free and refreshments will be available.
Meyers added that he thinks the way Native people have encouraged each other is to have singing.
“I think it’s the same concept of Christian singing, the same concept of enjoying life, freedom of expression,” Meyers said. “I think that any culture song and dance is very critical for restoring the soul, and giving us reason and hope to live again.
“I think the event is meant as giving people hope, giving people a reason to go on, giving people a reason to congregate again and enjoy our common humanity, and celebrate our continuous survival as a nation, as a country,” he added.
