Eight Tone Bells, A Choir Director From Winnipeg, Servanthood and Women

dave-in-churchWhen we were in Quebec City we attended Sunday service at The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. They have eight bells in their church tower to announce the start of worship and each bell plays a different note on the scale. Give a listen by clicking the picture below.cathedral-of-the-holy-trinity

The choir director at Holy Trinity is Sandra Bender and her first job was conducting a young adult choir at First Mennonite Church in Winnipeg.
