If you can carry a tune and have a desire to comfort people who are ill or dying, you are needed to join the Threshold Choir of Lebanon, Ohio. Members of the Threshold Choir go to the bedside of ill or dying people and sing comforting songs. The songs are spiritual, but not from any particular religion.
A requirement for membership would be to attend meetings and volunteer to sit at the bedside with two other choir members to sing at least once a month. There would also be initial training. The rehersals are every Tuesday from 7 PM to 8:30 PM in the Porkolab Room at Otterbein.in the LEC building. We will be going to twice a month meetings.
There is a website for the Threshold Choir (https://thresholdchoir.org/) and several youtube videos that show members of the Threshold Choir singing. Threshold Choir is an international organization with over 150 choir groups.
If you are drawn to this way of serving seriously ill people, please contact us for more information.. Also, if you need directions, we will be happy to tell you how to get to our meeting.
