  5. News : Aperture: Third Wednesdays, January 2019

    Join us on Wednesday, January 16, at 6:30pm for “Celtic Spirituality in Music & Art” with Kristen Leigh, professional musician, singer/songwriter, and artist.

    We live in a culture where mind and body, heaven and earth, sacred and secular are usually perceived as being radically distinct and separate from one another. But Celtic spirituality comes from a cosmology much closer to that of Jesus and the ancient Hebrews – one that is infused with a sense of God’s abiding presence in the material world, emphasizing the interconnectedness of all things and the need to restore right relationship between humans, the natural world, and God. By looking at some Celtic traditions in art and music – especially illuminated manuscripts like the Book of Durrow and the Book of Kells – we can learn to see and experience the presence of God all around us, even in our ordinary, everyday lives.

    Kristen Leigh is a professional musician and artist, with a Master’s degree in Theology and the Arts from Union Theological Seminary at Columbia University. In addition to performing as a singer/songwriter (www.kristenleighmusic.com), she is an experienced congregational song leader who specializes in oral traditions and paperless music from all over the world, and teaches classes and workshops on the spiritual practice of singing. She has had a lifelong fascination with Celtic music and art and has spent time on pilgrimage in Ireland and Scotland studying Celtic spiritual, musical, and artistic traditions.

     

    Dinner will be served at 5:45pm in the Fellowship Hall (fried chicken with multiple sides and dessert). Cost: $5 per person/$20 max per family. Register by January 14: www.bit.ly/myWPCevent.
