Finding a Quiet Place
As an antidote to the insanity of the world, may I recommend, for your listening pleasure, Rachmaninoff's "Vespers"? I am currently listening, and find them able to remove me, for a moment or two, from the chaos within which we currently find ourselves. There are many editions; mine is from the Musical Heritage Society, and is highly recommended.
You do not have to be a Christian, or even believe in God, to find respite within this music. It provides a wonderful canopy under which all can find rest - and it asks nothing of us but to listen; in that way it is very Christian in the best sense of the term. On this Sunday, find an hour to close your eyes, or read a book, or do the dishes, or whatever, and find a copy of the "Vespers". You will be transported; I guarantee it.
