"The Gospel According to the Beatles": A Summer Sermon Series

Do you remember that sixties rock foursome that changed the international pop music scene forever, before breaking up in 1970? Even casual listeners to the discography of the Beatles will notice a thread running through their music that speaks to a philosophical and spiritual journey. Did you know that John Lennon was deeply involved in a local church in Woolton, England for at least ten years? And that the fab four all had some religious/ theological education?

The book “The Gospel According to the Beatles” (Steve Turner, Westminster John Knox Press) is not trying to make the case that the Beatles were all secretly Christian. But it persuasively argues that themes arise in their songs that speak to universal human spiritual experiences. I think summer would be a great time to explore them!

Beginning Sunday June 24 we will delve into how a Beatles’ song and one or two passages of scripture can illuminate one another (and, hopefully, us!). I hope you will join us on this magical mystery tour!

 

June 24:       “You Can’t Do That”          1 Samuel 17:32-49; Mark 4:35-41

July 1:          “All You Need Is Love”       Mark 6:1-6; 1 John 4:7-12

July 8:          “In My Life”                      Psalm 130; 2 Samuel 1:1, 17-27

July 15:        “Nowhere Man”                 Amos 7:7-13; Mark 6:14-29

July 22:        “Carry That Weight”          Jeremiah 23:1-6; Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

July 29:        “Let It Be”                        2 Kings 4:42-44; Ephesians 3:14-21

Fifty Years of Pop Music with Jeff Kellam!

On Sunday February 11 Jeff Kellam will present “Fifty Years of American Pop Music,” choosing songs from the 1940s into the 1990s. “I want to start with music our older church members might have grown up with, the big band era," Jeff says, "and move forward to the songs I played as my ‘radio days’ came to an end. So, we’ll move from Glenn Miller to U-2, playing excerpts of ‘hit songs.’”

Join us after worship for this wonderful event in the Fellowship Hall; luncheon provided by the Membership and Fellowship Committee and the Thoughtful Christian Class.
