Sonic Emotion

I’ve heard of a sonic boom. I’ve heard of sonic waves and sonic vibrations and even Sonic drive-ins, but I’ve never heard of sonic emotion until I heard Dr. Daphne Brooks, professor of African-American studies at Yale and an expert on soul singer Aretha Franklin, talk about Franklin’s musical development. As you have probably heard, Franklin died on August 16, 2018.

The Baby Elephant in the Narthex

Welcome to the arts and culture blog! In this space I plan to write about all things arts and cultural happening at SOS. Last year, I realized that sometimes we did things that I wanted to expand on – I wanted to explain more to congregational members about where we got the idea to do this, or why we did that, or the liturgical significance of a change we implemented for a special worship. Sometimes there are behind the scenes stories to tell, and I’ll have a few of them in the next few months. I’ll also have some personal reflections on what I encounter out there in the big world, and as part of our church community.
