Sermons in Song: Sherry Cothran
In the late 1990s, Sherry Cothran was the lead singer for the popular indie-rock band The Evinrudes. After the band broke up, Cothran followed a calling to divinity school, and is now a pastor in the United Methodist Church. As she leads her congregation, she combines her skills as a musician with preaching, resulting in what she refers to as "song sermons."
Cothran has collected several of these song sermons on her new album, Sunland, which explores the voices of women from the ancient religious world.
You can find tracks from the album, along with lyrics and other information, here.
Sherry Cothran is the pastor of West Nashville United Methodist Church.
