Sunday 10/27 - 10:30am - 12pm at Odiyana Meditation Center, 36 Main Street, East Hartford. Both kids and adults simply want to be happy and free from those negative minds that make relationships uncomfortable. By gaining familiarity with positive states of mind such as love, patience, and kindness, we naturally begin to improve our family relationships. Families begin the class together in the main meditation room. Kids then, go to their own classroom with the kids' teacher to engage in a child-centered activity while the adults receive a teaching. $12 adults / $3 kids No one turned away due to lack of funds.

***This program may be shortened to allow for in-depth conversation regarding the musical selections, the composers, and the historical context. The final concert of the HSQ season, Modal Meditations, features three works each exploring the powerful worlds of modal harmonies. Originally scored as incidental music for an adaptation of Samuel Becketts play of the same name, Philip Glass second quartet, Company, was written in 1983. In quintessential Glassian fashion, the works seems to shimmer in and out of existence as it undulates between major and minor. Beethovens Op. 132, one of the great works of the quartet repertoire, centers around its monumental 4th movement, written after a period of serious illness towards the end of the composers life. When his strength returned, Beethoven wrote a Holy song of thanksgiving of a convalescent to the Deity, in the Lydian mode, a title the composer gave to the works profound fourth movement. The concert will also include a world premiere by Music Havens own Resident Musician Patrick Doane. Modal Meditations Beethoven op. 132 Philip Glass Quartetsatz / Quartet #2 Doane Meditations

The ancient and beautiful service of Choral Evensong is presented on the fourth Sunday of selected months at St. John’s. Join us on October 27 at 5:00pm for music by the St. John’s Youth and Adult Choirs; Scott Lamlein, choirmaster; Jake Street, organist. Responses: Caracciolo Canticles: Stanford in C Anthem: Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace – Niedmann What is Choral Evensong? “Evensong … is a very tiny fragment of something else: it is a fragment of the worship which is offered to God by Christian people every hour in every part of the world. When you come to Evensong here it is as if you were dropping in on a conversation already in progress — a conversation between God and people which began long before you were born and will go on long after you are dead.” Why celebrate Evensong? Evensong offers to us the opportunity to gather and spend time in prayer while listening and participating in music that is especially selected to bring us into deeper understanding of the mysteries of our faith. How long does Choral Evensong last? Approximately 35-45 minutes What should I expect at Evensong? Hymns, readings, Anglican chant and anthems sung by the choir Will there be a sermon? No. Why does the choir sing so much at Choral Evensong? In Choral Evensong the choir sings on “behalf of” the congregation. The settings of the Canticles of Mary (Magnificat) and Simeon (Nunc Dimittis) are always sung by the choir alone. The Suffrages (prayers) and the Responses between the Officiant and People are also sung between the Officiant and Choir on behalf of the people. This allows the congregation time to meditate and enter into deeper prayer through words and music. What does the congregation do in Evensong? The congregation joins in the singing of the hymns, the Apostle’s Creed and the Lord’s Prayer. The congregation joins in silent meditation through the prayers and canticles. How will I know what I should do during the service? A bulletin outlining the service will be available. What is a canticle? A canticle (from the Latin canticulum, a diminutive of canticum, song) is a hymn (strictly excluding the Psalms) taken from the Bible. Please plan on joining us for this beautiful and uniquely Anglican form of worship.

DOING OUR FIRST WORKS OVER: Reimagining Blackness, Sexuality, and the Sacred Responding to James Baldwin’s charge to “do our first works over,”* our All School Conference at Yale Divinity School will convene this fall to reexamine how theologians and students can “make our words more adequate to our realities and imaginations of life, death, and God.”**  Through work inspired by Black Thought, Queerist Belongings, and Atheological Intersections, we entreat the entire Yale Divinity School community to reflect on the relevant applications of multi-faith practices through the hermeneutics of black queer theology. Our keynote speakers represent various journeys including atheological, Buddhist, Catholic, Episcopalian, Jewish, and Orisa/Lucumi traditions.  The conference will be held on Friday, November 8th (2pm-6pm) to Saturday, November 9th (9:30am-5:30pm). The Community Life Committee of YDS will sponsor a dance party on Friday night at Gryphon (8pm-11pm). We encourage you to register by October 18th so that we may plan accordingly. Our Keynote Speakers will be: Dr. Amaryah Shaye Armstrong, Assistant Professor of Race in American Religion and Culture, Virginia Tech Dr. Craig A. Ford, Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at St. Norbert College; YDS Alumnus Dr. Renee L. Hill, Columbia University Community Scholar, Columbia University  We have invited dozens of YDS alumni to join this conversation with us and to facilitate our small groups. We anticipate a time of powerful sharing and networking.  We shall consider such questions posed by Professor Amaryah Shaye Armstrong in her article "Thinking Practice: Method, Pedagogy, Power and the Question of a Black Queer Theology“ as:  What has to die in our theology in order for a black queer theology to live? What kind of methods, pedagogies, and power in black queer theology are adequate to our imaginations of truth and justice and love?  What does it mean to both retool Christian theological material and displace Christianity as governing the terms in which a black queer theology can be done?  How can the intersectional depth of this conversation clarify and strengthen our own callings as ministers and practitioners of faith and social justice? Instead of traditional forums and panels, we are convening young theologians and recent YDS alumni to engage in small group conversations with students that will investigate these topics and their applications within the academy and beyond YDS.  Visit https://campuspress.yale.edu/ydsallschool2019/ to familiarize yourself with the keynote speakers and alumni. We hope that you will be able to prepare by reading some of the participants’ works, especially Professor Armstrong’s article mentioned above.  *from his writings in The Price of the Ticket; James Baldwin wrote about “do[ing] our first works over.” “In the church I come from—which is not at all the same church to which white Americans belong—we were counseled, from time to time, to do our first works over.” “Go back to where you started, or as far back as you can, examine all of it, travel your road again and tell the truth about it. Sing or shout or testify or keep it to yourself,” Baldwin says, “but know whence you came.”[1] Doing first works over means to reexamine everything from its onset and tell the truth about it, as best we can. **(Armstrong 9)
