We are preparing for the Kendall premiere of So Flo Floods on Wednesday, August 7th, at 5:30 pm at St. Luke’s Episcopal (Anglican) Church, in conjunction with the Ladies of St. Luke's who will be preparing a lovely tea for all. Suggested contributions are $10 which go in equal measure to support St. Luke’s and TheoEco Institute.
The first people we met in Nepal were Amit Nepali and his father, the Reverend Shyam Nepali. The introduction was through the Anglican Church in Singapore and we have been blessed since to have Amit – and the rest of his family, friends, and brothers and sisters in the church – in our corner.
That was in the fall of 2015 shortly after the monsoons and the mega-quakes that the country experienced that spring.
We quickly learned about Amit’s musical talent as a singer, composer, guitarist, drummer, keyboardist, and more, as well as about the Jubal Music Ministry. We are still flabbergasted at the sheer fruitfulness. At the time he already had recorded more than 200 songs and was well on his way to completing the entire Nepali hymnal. Talk about prolific!
Turned out that Amit was much more than a tremendous musician and devoted Christian, however.
The Nepali Christian community loves to sing. Music is fundamental to traditional Nepali society and the Christians infuse lots of music into all their services. It is not unusual for a Saturday service (Sundays are work days in Nepal) to go three hours with the first hour dedicated to worship music. To experience this for yourself see our mini-documentary Sunday School on Saturday where you’ll meet Amit Nepali and the rest of the Golgotha Church musicians.
