Contemplative Spirituality: Inspirational Music
November 25, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
“Few cultural artifacts have the ability to manipulate the emotions that music has. From the liturgy of the church to the operatic stage to the concert hall to the movie screen, music can make us FEEL more deeply than any of the other arts. As one of the truly great achievements of Western culture, the full symphony orchestra can do this perhaps more effectively than any other type of ensemble besides a skilled and well-rehearsed chorus. In addition to its ability to calm our emotions, aid or induce a meditative state, or relax us physically to the edge of sleep, music for both orchestra and chorus can excite us, inspire us, and cause our spirit to soar to heights rarely reached as the result of any other human experience. This effect will be the emphasis of November’s Spiritual Exploration program.”
The Contemplative Spirituality group meets at Christ Church United Church of Christ, 4870 Kutztown Road, Temple, on Monday, November 25, at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome.
