Sermon: Charms to Soothe

violinist-1414501“Charms to Soothe”

(January 15, 2017) Music can lift our mood, center us or grab our attention, and convey the deep range of emotion of the human experience. Is it possible that Jesus, who embodied that full range of human experience, can be found in just about any kind of music? What music has charms to soothe your inner self? (Psalm 40, Matthew 3:13-17)
