This spring’s Festival of Faith and Music boasted over 20 workshops by leading artists and academics of faith. Now you can listen to those lectures here at the SAO weblog with a click (or two) of your mouse.
We’ll be posting as many of these workshops as possible as we convert them from analog to digital. (Many thanks are due to FFM committee member James Stewart for devoting time to this painstaking process.) The lectures will be available as mp3s, and can be listened to in any media player that supports the mp3 format. File sizes are on the large side, so give yourself plenty of time to download and listen.
The following lectures are currently available. Just click the hyperlink to download.
“Poetry and Pentecost,” David Dark (keynote speaker).
“Gotta Let the Whole Kingdom Come,” Sarah Masen and David Dark. Masen and Dark discuss the imperative of imaginative living, their awkward attempts at hospitality, and how stories and songs have nowhere to happen but the ongoing conversation of the uncertain everyday.
“Crumbs from your Table: U2 and Justice,” Steve Stockman. Stocki proposes that U2 sets an example for musicians to take on the Biblical mandate for social change and justice.
Please let us know if there are any technical problems with downloads. Enjoy!
