Music and Message

Music-and-Message-cover-photo.jpg

"Music and Message" — the popular weekly series from Hendricks Chapel that features musical performances and spoken reflection from a diversity of religious and spiritual perspectives — is returning to campus this fall semester. These gatherings seek to invite learners of all ages into the fullness of life, and we invite all students, faculty and staff for another season of inspiration.

Our theme for the Fall 2020 semester was “Beauty/Brokenness.” In the midst of unprecedented times, we explored the ways in which beauty can emerge from brokenness, and also, how brokenness can be found within that which is often deemed to be beautiful. By exploring such paradox and tension, participants explored the role of joy, grief, celebration and sorrow within the human experience.
