Internet Radio Show: Sing For Joy

Tune in Early (Live on 8/16/20 at 7:30AM)

Streaming From:  WCPE - Wake Forest, NC, USA

Hosted by the Reverend Bruce Benson
John Ferguson, Music Director
Every week SING FOR JOY is heard on over 150 radio stations nationwide. Since its inception in 1954 through his retirement in November 2002, the program was hosted by its creator, the Reverend Alvin Rueter. For nearly a half century, the Rev. Rueter shared a unique ministry through his presentation of hymns, choral performances and readings based on the liturgical calendar.

Beginning with our Advent broadcasts in December 2002, two accomplished members of the St. Olaf College community share chief responsibility for SING FOR JOY's content. St. Olaf College Pastor Bruce Benson has become SING FOR JOY's writer and host, and John Ferguson, the faculty member who heads the St. Olaf church music program, is in charge of selecting the music. Together Bruce and John will continue the traditions and further the mission of SING FOR JOY, first realized almost 50 years ago.

The program's mission remains simple: To provide music and commentary that will support the church in evangelism and worship. By providing sacred choral music and thoughtful commentary, SING FOR JOY prepares listeners for worship and reinforces their worship experience.

One of the defining traits of SING FOR JOY is basing each week's music on the scriptural lessons specified in the common lectionary. This three-year cycle of readings has become the basis for worship in the services that a majority of churchgoers in America attend. Moreover, the musical performances "do the talking" — the announcements are compact, while striving to illuminate the meaning of the texts.
