Songs of Faith from Near and Far
Mary Preus, Donna Peña, ValLimar Jansen,
and Jose Antonio Machado
An ecumenical group originally formed to lead music and worship for Lutheran Global Mission Events around the country, Cross Culture now shares its gift of song with a wider audience through Songs of Faith from Near and Far!
From the energy of African-American gospel songs to the simple message of inclusion in a Taiwanese hymn and the traditional "Amazing Grace" sung in the Cherokee language, this recording takes the listener around the world and back exploring the common bonds of human love, strength, and faith.
