This Sunday we're exploring how the ultimate reality and plane of existence is "Love". We'll observe how the clarity of that reality can be clouded by both internal and external influences. Radiohead's song "Street Spirit (fade out)" is about how life and one's struggles can become overbearing, and how they are largely inevitable. It also pleads that the way to mitigate these constant forces pulling us down is to "Immerse your soul in love!". We'll look forward to sharing in the contemplations on Sunday. Until then feel free to turn up the volume and enjoy... (the band will give this song a go on Sunday)
This Sunday we're celebrating the return of our fantastic children's program headed up by Emily L'Hommedieu. Several years ago Pine Street Church decided to reinvest in the future by designating funding for a new, innovative, and dynamic children's program. This week our band will share a song that expresses this enthusiasm for the miracle and importance that children are and should be. The great Stevie Wonder wrote this song about his daughter Aisha Morris shortly after she was born. Its difficult to disagree with the pure joy expressed in both the music and lyrics. Enjoy this timeless song, and we'll look forward to seeing everyone Sunday!
This Sunday as we delve deeper into living a more faith centered life we'll explore a song that expresses concern over the dangers that one's beliefs can pose. There is a difference between the faith and belief that allowed Jesus to travel to Jerusalem when he knew that it would lead to his own death and the faith and beliefs that "justified" his execution. This is our special music this week:
(De-)Construction has begun. Our Off Broadway Preschool of Fine Arts will open January 2015 (registration information coming soon)! This building will be its new home, along with our Off Broadway School of Fine Arts (SoFA).
