The Lee University U-Church season will continue with Christian artist Audrey Assad on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

Ms. Assad is an independent singer, musician, and songwriter whose musical influences range from Paul Simon to Jack White. She was signed to Christian record label Sparrow Records for four years until she began her independent career in 2011. 

“It's very exciting knowing the direction that Audrey has taken with this current tour,” said U-Church Director Josh York. “The way she incorporates visual art and traditional instrumentation facilitates corporate prayer and worship in a unique way that I believe will be appreciated by our students and guests.”

Review for Audrey Assad:

Ms. Assad has a passion for bringing to light the peculiarities and joys of the Sacrament, which can be seen through the music she makes.

Her latest album, “Fortunate Fall,” was released in August of 2013. Paid for through a fan-based fundraising campaign, the album is full of songs for liturgy, personal prayer, and corporate worship. 

According to Ms. Assad, her music “explores the beauty of human need, in that needing God allows us to know God is Christ the Redeemer and the Holy Spirit the Revealer.”

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event for students, alumni and the community. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is first come, first serve.  Childcare is available for all who attend.  Please contact Christie Wyatt at cwyatt@leeuniversity.edu  for more information.

For a chance to win contests, as well as have input on future artists, please follow U-Church on Twitter @LeeUChurch.

Steve Ellison: The Choice

In Matthew 21 and 22, Jesus told a series of parables aimed primarily at identifying, defining, and condemning hypocrisy. The Parable of the Two Sons, the Parable of the Wicked Tenants (more accurately the Parable of the Landowner), and the Parable of the Wedding Feast each teach us about the terrible dangers of hypocrisy.  However, our always gracious and forgiving God stood ...
