The Spirituality of Sound – Sunday, May 1 at 2:00 p.m.

We live in is a visually dominant world. “Seeing is believing,” we say. But the worlds out of which sacred texts such as the Hebrew Scriptures, the Christian Bible, and the Quran emerged were worlds of sound—mysterious and enchanted. We will explore these worlds, becoming familiar with the deeply spiritual nature of sound, and the ways in which sound is ephemeral, living, and dynamic. Using Marshall McLuhan’s four laws of media as our guide, Dr. Todd Stockdale will focus on the spiritual implications of the move from hearing-dominant to visual-dominant cultures. The suggested donation is $20 but all are welcome. For more information email
