Join the members of our Pastoral Staff for a weekly reflection every Monday!
October 19, 2020
Hans Christian Anderson is quoted as saying “Where words fail, music speaks.” It is with this quote in mind that in lieu of me offering this week’s reflection filled with words, I offer you a reflection filled with Music. The video I invite you to watch is from Sunday, October 18th with Arco Cleveland offering a program of Strings and Showtunes as part of the 15th Anniversary Season of our Music In A Sacred Space Concert Series. It is a light-hearted program of favorite songs from familiar shows by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Claude-Michel Schonberg, John Williams and even ABBA! I hope that it will bring you as much joy as it brought me and all those who were present for the concert or watched it via the Livestream. For the next 50 minutes you won’t find sensational news or politics. You won’t find anyone trying to sell you anything or trying to change your mind. You’ll just find 4 talented local musicians doing their best (and doing it well) to brighten your day and lift you to a higher place. For, as Elton John once said: “Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” I wish you all healing and joy today and every day!
