'Crossing the Divide' concert focuses on reconciliation

Carson Valley United Methodist Church will host Connye Florance and Kevin Madill in a return performance of their concert "Crossing the Divide," 4 p.m. Sunday.

Crossing the Divide is a music ministry of racial and social reconciliation by Florance and Madill.

"The concert uses music to break down the walls that divide us racially, socially, economically, and even by our faith," church music director Steve Farnsley said. "Florance and Madill last performed at Carson Valley United Methodist Church in March of 2010, and the concert and message were well received by the 150 people who attended."

The concert draws upon jazz, gospel and spirituals, and this year audience members will have the opportunity to join in by singing selections from "The Faith We Sing" song book.

There will be time at the end of the concert for those in attendance to share their experiences or to ask questions. A recording of the concert will be available for purchase.

Crossing the Divide is free and open to the public; a free will offering will be accepted to support the ministry.

The Carson Valley United Methodist Church is located at 1375 Centerville Lane in Gardnerville.

For further information call 782-4600.
