Love…Love…Love

Being a bonafide child of the 60’s gave me a huge appreciation for music that I still love.  At any given time you might find me listening The Doors “Hello I Love You” or Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” full blast in my office here at home or in my car.  But it must be said that my never ending favorite group has to be The Beatles.  Yes, I saw them as they  first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show that Sunday evening so long ago.  I’m not sure I understood it all but I knew I loved the beat, even though I was a bit too young to join the screaming throngs of hysterical young woman practically tearing their hair out over the Fab Four.  I think my favorite phase of this brilliant group’s career was when they began to explore what life is all about.  They traveled to India, and sat at the feet of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the famous guru, who taught them the basis of his teaching, and, by the way, the basis of what Christ followers know as well…Love Is All There is.  This message is at the foundation of everything authentic and real.   Nobody put the power of love into music in the way The Beatles did.

Many of you watched the historic wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a few months back.  The Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church here in the USA, gave a powerful sermon based on love and how it can change the world.  The whole world watched as Rev. Curry delivered words of hope and stated, “if it’s not about love, it’s not about God.”  It’s a timely message for the complicated world we find ourselves in today.

I am blessed to have a church community here, Christ Episcopal Church, in Covington, Louisiana.  I made the decision to write this post today in light of the fact that our amazing Rector, Fr. William Miller, is offering something so unique for all to attend this coming Sunday, September 23 at both the 9 and 11:30 am services.  I will be in music heaven as we enjoy a Beatles Mass featuring all of my favorites from”All You Need Is Love”, to “Hey Jude”, “Let It Be” and many more.  Local musicians will play and share the tunes and lyrics that so many of us grew up with. I am sure Fr. Bill will offer words of inspiration and wisdom as the sanctuary fills with joy and happiness!  This is a church community that walks its talk so, if you are nearby, or even far away, and you can make it to one of the services you will be very glad you did!  Just imagine all the love filling each heart this coming Sunday morning and spreading out into the world!  This promises to be a phenomenal day for all!

 

And now that I’ve got your attention on the Beatles…here’s a video to brighten your day!
