"We must be willing to learn from each other to understand true peace. We, as a world community, have so much to offer one another, and the love and strength that develops as we bond and unite is one that surpasses all understanding."
-from the introduction

Songs of Faith from Near and Far

Cross Culture

Mary Preus, Donna Peña, ValLimar Jansen,
Tom Witt 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.
