My friend and creative colleague Tracy Howe Wispelwey has a new CD out ...
Songs for 1000 Days. Here's the write-up:
Fourteen artists have joined Bread for the World Institute and Women of Faith for the 1,000 Days Movement to educate communities and advocate for policy change in the United States to end hunger at home and abroad and give every child the chance to thrive.
Featuring four original songs by La Muna, Tracy Howe, Heatherlyn, and Santiago Benavides, as well as a previously unreleased track from David Wilcox, this compilation contains songs about faith, hunger justice, and the call to action to support mothers and children in their first 1,000 days.
The 1,000 Days movement includes 40 different countries and promotes targeted action to improve nutrition for mothers and children in the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday—a time when better nutrition for mothers and children can have a life-changing impact on a child’s future and help break the cycle of poverty.
I've been listening to it for a few weeks and love it.
A similar and equally excellent project comes from another friend, Barclay Martin, Zamboanga: Poverty, War, and Music. Highly recommended.
I'm on Washington Island, Wisconsin, part of a forum on theology and spirituality here, enjoying wonderful musical leadership from another friend, Susan Phillips. She's been using lots of worship resources from Dakota Road, a group I'm glad to know about, and I think you will be too.
