Meaning, Meaning Everywhere

If you have any interest in music at all, and I hope all Christians have an interest in music (Eph 5:19), I highly recommend that you watch all four of the 2013 Epiphany Lectures by Ken Myers.

Just to whet your appetite, I will embed the first lecture here.

Myer's "motifs" for his talks are
  1. Music is a wonderful gift from God that presents unequaled opportunities for delight, for sharpening our perception of reality, for enabling unique communication between people, and for conveying to us something of the beauty of God and his creation.
  2. Modern culture's typical treatment of music eclipses its greatest possibilities.
  3. The church's counter-cultural identity should render it into a people with a distinctive musical life.
