Presented this month as part of the Soli Deo Gloria concert series located at First Presbyterian Church of Bellevue, her new oratorio Joseph is a powerful new retelling of an unforgettable adventure.
The Old Testament story of Joseph is deeply moving; it’s about one young man’s response to abuse, betrayal, culture shock, prejudice, exploitation, and ostracism. It’s about keeping your bearings in a constantly changing world and finding hope in the middle of impossible circumstances. There are so many parallels in Joseph’s journey to the trajectories of our lives today - I had no idea that a story more than three thousand years old could be this relevant and this contemporary.
