I mentioned yesterday that Terry and I listen to jazz on KCSM six nights a week. So what about the other night? Sunday night is classical night. The Monterey NPR station, KAZU, broadcasts the NPR classical service on its secondary HD channel, and also streams it over the Web. We really enjoy it. They don't play the old standards, but instead, on Sunday evenings at least, a lot of different and intersting works you might not have heard of.
If non-mainstream classical music interests you, check it out.
Following up on yesterday's reflection, it occurred to me that one way to practice looking for God’s presence is to "let it be."
A few years ago I mentioned here how Anne Lamott wrote that she would wear a pendant of the Virgin Mary, even though she is a Protestant who attends a predominately African-American Presbyterian church. Doing so reminds her to "let it be."
If you know the music of the Beatles you understand how she gets from point A to point B. (Yes, I know Paul McCartney was really referring to his own mother who was named Mary, but that's not the association that's made in popular culture.)
I'm glad I saw Rose is Rose on Sunday to remind me of this. Something I can really use right now. Remembering to let it be.
