|Shonyah Hawkins-Cottman of Harrisburg sings "Give Me Jesus"|
A new video series has been released by the communication team of the Susquehanna Conference. The series, called “Better Together,” is designed to build engagement with Shares of Ministry by answering some of the “why, what, how, and who” of this important part of our connection.
The introductory branding video has as a centerpiece a single stanza of the song, “Give Me Jesus,” made popular by Fernando Ortega. “In this case we have used the original rendering of the song as an African-American spiritual. Shonyah Hawkins-Cottman of Harrisburg was invited to record the song, which gives voice to a broken world that pleads with us as a church, ‘give me Jesus’,” says Jerry Wolgemuth, conference communicator. Shonyah is a host for a digital radio station (thevoice17104.com) that is housed at Derry Street UMC in Harrisburg.
