In cooperation with American and German radio producers and broadcasters the Goethe-Institut USA produces roughly 50 radio features for the program The Big Pond. A US-German Listening Series. Features are being broadcasted nation-wide in the United States on a weekly basis. All are available for free download in podcast format.
In this episode of The Big Pond: Within the historic walls of Zion Lutheran Church in Baltimore, Maryland, you’re just as likely to encounter the sound of a rousing polka band as you are to hear sacred organ music. For more than 250 years, the congregation has remained dedicated to its German heritage, faith, and ministry. Now, they are grappling with the challenge of finding the right balance of tradition and modernity that will carry Zion Church into the future.
