Needed Right Now! A Taste of Sweet Honey in the Rock

Service Description:

Today’s message is a personal testament to the a cappella, African American women’s ensemble, Sweet Honey in the Rock… and, particularly, to the group’s seminal freedom fighters, influencers, and shepherds, Drs. Bernice Johnson Reagon and Ysaye Maria Barnwell. For over thirty years, Sweet Honey’s music has served as elixir and spirit guide in times of struggle. Let’s sing!
