This past summer’s three-week Sound Foundations Level 2 class provided both academic learning and spiritual growth. In class, students studied the principles of harmony; in chapel and team devotions, they studied humility. Each day began with personal devotions. Several students commented that they appreciated a return to making time with God a priority in their daily routine.
Students and their team leaders read through Andrew Murray’s book titled Humility, discussing each chapter, sharing insights, and answering personal application questions. Chapel services were held each morning. A favorite quote gained from the chapel times was “Humility is not a status to be obtained, but a person to be depended on.” This quote became the catchphrase for the three weeks.
Afternoon sessions included several former instructors surprising students both in person and through live video calls—a delightful treat everyone enjoyed! Students also viewed prerecorded messages on topics such as the power of music, hymnology, purpose in singing, and worship through music.
The summer session concluded with a Friday evening pizza party, slideshow, and sharing time. During the testimony time, participants expressed praise to God for the time at Sound Foundations and His work in their hearts.
“Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints” (Psalm 149:1).
