October 29: Al & Andi Tauber

Rebecca K News

On October 29, Al and Andi Tauber from Emmaus Ministries in Chicago will bring a one-hour special music presentation “Going Home” as our worship service.

Music has always been a part of Al’s life, having had his first paying gig at age two, singing for his grandmother’s carpool. Since 1993, he has written, performed, recorded, produced, and taught music in a variety of contexts, but his soul remains best fed when singing with his wife as half of the duo “andi and i.”

Andi counts many blessings in her life, including her husband, her family and friends, her home church, her coworkers, making music, living in Chicago – too many to name. But among these has been getting to know many of the men of Emmaus: men who have been wounded and neglected and dismissed for much of their lives, who nevertheless freely offer themselves and their stories, revealing how resilient, fun, gifted, complex, generous, and compassionate they can be. God is working in their lives, and in Andi’s life, and it is a blessing to share that along the road.

Al and Andi are part of Living Water Community Church, a Mennonite congregation in Chicago.
