Ed Roberts

I've worked as a church musician since my days as a boy soprano. Prior to Rock Spring Church, I was the organist and music director at Westminster Presbyterian Church (DC) and Silver Spring Presbyterian Church. I hold a Master of Music in Vocal Accompaniment from New England Conservatory, and am active as an accompanist and opera conductor in addition to my work as an organist.

A particularly enjoyable part of my work at Rock Spring is accompanying young musicians in rehearsals and performances at the church. Rock Spring encourages not only choir singers and bell ringers, but also individual musicians of all ages and types to share the joy of music with the members of this vibrant congregation.

Everyone will have noticed by now a slow-down in the project. This is due to our main contractor, NKB, walking off the job on August 1 and informing us by letter that they could not complete the work.

On September 10 at 10:00 a.m., we will welcome guest preacher Rev. Sid Lovett for a service focused on peace and specifically the important work of the US Institute for Peace. Following worship, join together for a congregational lunch to catch up with the Rock Spring family after the summer.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
