Singing the Way of Love
September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
As part of St. Columba, Kent’s focus on “The Way of Love,” St. Columba’s Singers will begin their year experiencing musical means that energize them towards meaningful, holistic spiritual practice. They have invited community-builder and musician Jack Barben to lead them, and they are inviting the whole congregation to see how the practice of Christianity might be formed through music.
Jack has been a professional musician and teacher of music to children and adults for over twenty years. He has trained as a classical musician and is familiar with a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz, pop, folk, Hindustani classical, and West African drumming.
Before departing for a time of intense spiritual study and formation at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu, Nepal, Jack was most recently the music director at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Renton. He now lives in San Diego where he will be teaching music full-time and is coming here to Washington to be with St. Columba, Kent for this event.
