We have probably all heard about ancient music but the 79 members of the Seminary Guild and community actually had a chance to hear—and even try singing—some at the annual Harvest Day, held Saturday, 18 October. Guest presenters were Daniel Lantz and members of The Society for the Archaeology of Ancient Music, a student club at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON.
Other activities that morning included a student-led worship service with Concordia Seminary Student Association president, Paul Schulz, as the preacher. A brief business meeting resolved to continue refurbishing the seminary’s wooden chairs in the library and seminar room. And a delicious catered lunch provided Guild members the opportunity to greet, meet, and eat with their adopted students. (For more information on this programme, please contact Dr Wm Mundt, Dean of Students.)
The day began with students unloading donations of groceries for the seminary food bank. All this care and support, one new student remarked, was a great surprise and a little overwhelming.
