In the Shadow of Your Wings: A Musical Bible Study on the Psalms
August 6 from 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The psalms were originally set to music; yet rarely do we have the opportunity to really listen to them. UniteBoston is partnering with Deus Ex Musica for a unique virtual event: a “musical bible study” in which participants listen to brand-new musical settings of two psalms, then join together for discussion about how the musical interpretations help us experience the Scriptures.
Participants will watch pre-recorded live performances of classical vocal settings of Psalm 13 and Psalm 148, each written by an award-wining contemporary classical music composer representing a different Christian tradition. After viewing each set of performances, participants will engage in moderated small-group discussions. Since each psalm is set to music by more than one composer, participants will hear how different musical responses to the same text bring to life various dimensions of each psalm. This provides a unique and memorable way for participants to experience the depth and beauty of Scripture in ways that promote both learning, discipleship, and community. It also provides a rare opportunity for Christians of all stripes to gather in fellowship and dialogue about something we all agree on: the power and importance of the Bible. No musical experience or expertise is required by any participants.
Join us for a FREE musical bible study to build connection, renewal, and hope. Click here to register and receive the Zoom link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/114037053898/
