November 26: Come Silence, Come Darkness
The Rev. Meghann Robern
In our modern life, we spend enormous resources on lighting up the darkness and surrounding ourselves with constant stimuli, often to the point of throwing ourselves out of balance. As we move deeper into the winter season of dampening snow and longer nights, what blessings can we bring from these ecological cycles out of which we evolved?
From the Minister's Study - November 2017
"He was singing a melody he did not know, and yet the notes poured from his throat with all the assurance of long familiarity. They moved through the time-spinning reaches of a far galaxy, and he realized that the galaxy itself was part of a mighty orchestra, and each star and planet within the galaxy added its own instrument to the music of the spheres. As long as the ancient harmonies were sung, the universe would not entirely lose its joy." A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Madeleine L'Engle, p.77
A couple of years ago when I was living in Nashville, I attended a concert by Portara Ensemble. I knew it was going to be good, but I was unprepared for how deeply and profoundly the performance would affect me. The theme of the evening was "On a Starry Night," and it featured songs written about the stars from a stunning variety of sources. More than that, however, was the music itself—the live performance.
