Performing at JUC Worship Services

Today, I played Bach’s Prelude from Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 and Andrew York’s “Willow” at the Jefferson Unitarian Church morning services, and again at the afternoon service held on the Evergreen Campus.  The prelude was originally written for cello, but was transcribed for guitar.  The minister opened the morning worship service with a quotation from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”  Following the call to worship, I played Bach’s Prelude, mindful of the mysterious, invisible power music exerts over my life and the lives of others.
