Wheaton's Gary United Methodist Church invites the public to a presentation of Karl Jenkins' monumental and world-renowned "The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace" during regular worship services on Sunday, May 21 at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. The performance portrays the tragedies of war, and redemption through God's offer of peace. Thrilling instrumentation, inspirational voices, sound effects of rain sticks, trumpets, and drums, a dancer in the final movement--this is a worship experience to remember, and a powerful call to peace. Music speaks to us beyond the limits of language, and helps us to envision our higher purposes. Please come and listen as we sing peace into our community and into our world.
