Reflections on the “Two Weights” of Christmas

One of the animating values of City Church is a commitment to the arts, and among the unique capabilities of art is the joining-together of themes and abstract concepts with raw emotion. Christmas brings with it a lot of art that illuminates concepts such as peace, charity, family, the thoughtful close of a year and the anticipation of a prosperous new one. In most cases, these themes are tonally married to a thin slice of the emotional spectrum: joy and happiness.

Christmas 2017 at City Church

Memories and music rush to my mind this time of year. Even my earliest recollections of Christmas seem to be paired with a playlist: Drooling over the kitchen counter as my mother bakes her delicious fudge and Bing Crosby croons White Christmas in the background or shouting Feliz Navidad along with Jose Feliciano as my father and I string Christmas lights outside our home. The older I get the more heartwarming these kinds of moments are to me. For many of us no other season of the year is so richly adorned with vivid stories and songs from our past.

Jumping the Break

Singing is divided into two tonal classifications. The most common, modal, is ‘full-bodied’ tone, often referred to as “chest voice,” because it uses the entire chest cavity as a resonant chamber. This is how we usually speak. The other type, known as falsetto, leaves a major portion of the vocal chords relaxed, allowing more air to pass over them without increasing the volume or resonating in the rest of the torso: it’s "breathier." Falsetto is known as “head voice” and is the singing equivalent of whispering. Think Prince at the beginning of “Kiss."

Money Matters Course

Money is a sensitive subject we may be reluctant to discuss with others. Jesus was not. Next to his kingdom, he spoke more often about money than any other subject. Turns out it’s integral to what it means to follow Jesus and live a meaningful life.
