4’33”

Imagine entering a concert hall, ready to listen to one of the greatest composers play a piece, only to watch him sit at the piano and do nothing for four and a half minutes.

Pastor Kate follows the lead of composer John Cage and begins her sermon with 4 minutes, 33 seconds of “silence” (the silence is not included in the recording), playing with the idea of our preconceived notions and set definitions. Something Jesus did with the Pharisees 2000 years ago.

 

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 27:1-4
John 9:1-41
