Swing a New Song

Call it grace fusion. Bill Carter works at integrating his passion for God, for his Presbyterian ministry, and for jazz. He feels that our lives shouldn't be compart-mentalized into cubicles. And he affirms that our day-to-day roles can fuse to serve a true identity, rather than partition us from ourselves. Carter's convinced, too, that jazz fits naturally into worship and that its improvisatory nature is a metaphor for faith.
