A Community of Talent by Ann Posey

“Imagine a world without poetry, dance, song, comedy, film,
architecture, painting, stories, symphonies, theater or sculpture. Such a
world would be bland. Art brings vibrancy and beauty to our lives.
Creativity is both a fully human and fully divine experience. It is an
acknowledgment that something eternal and full of truth lies behind the
temporal world in which we live. It focuses our eyes on the pain around
us, the injustice in front of us, the joy abounding within us, and the
pull we feel towards meaning and significance. Music moves us. Poetry
connects us. Paintings shout at us. Dance energizes us. Art draws us
back into the fold of humanity when we wander out full of pain,
discouragement, and bitterness. It whispers, ‘You are not alone.’”

You already know Second Baptist is blessed with many talented and well-trained musicians who freely share their gifts in worship. We are blessed week in and week out with those who share their talents and creativity. Among them are about forty pianists, and at least ten of them can play on a moments notice. Our Two or More/Pipes and Keys program, September 16, 2:30 pm in the sanctuary will feature about twenty pianists and four organists playing keyboard works for two to eight players on up to four keyboards. They range in age from eight to eighty! And there will be music from almost every genre.  Of course, there will be cookies from Susan Pettyjohn and lemonade to share after the program.
