The Light in the Darkness – Cathleen Blackburn
A Music Sunday! Includes a quote from Nietzsche, readings from Rev. Jason Shelton and Robert Kaufmann, and a homily by Cathleen Blackburn on the intersectionality of winter solstice traditions between cultures and over time and between modern cultures and how they have inspired the ways we celebrate winter holidays today. She focuses on traditions surrounding light in the darkness. You’ll hear excerpts from these pieces of music: “Pray on Christmas” by Harry Connick, “The Sleigh” by Richard Kountz, “Solstice Carol” by Kim Baryluk, “Love is Christmas” by Sara Bareilles, “A Winter Night”, and “Where are you Christmas” by Horner, Carey and Jennings.
