Responsible Resurrection

The Odes of Solomon with Natalie Perkins

By Alexis James Waggoner | 3/29/2019

Members of Westar's Praxis Forum recently embarked on projects specifically exploring ways to utilize the religious scholarship of Westar Institute in the work they do as pastors, chaplains, artists, students, and beyond. Praxis Steering Committee co-chair and Westar Board member, Natalie Perkins, recently created an album based on the Odes of Solomon.

In this discussion, she talks about the inspiration for the project, and how some of the songs could be used during the Lent and Easter season. The goal is that these songs find their way into different settings, in and out of worship communities. Purchase the album here.
