Music Matters: Exploring the Power and Purpose of Music

What: Music Matters: Exploring the Power and Purpose of Music
Why:

The subject of music is a much needed, but generally avoided topic. Ben Botkin gave two talks delving into some of what scripture says about music, how music works and the incredible impact it has over our mind and soul — an impact that can be used to drive us closer toward, or further from Christ.

How Does Music Work?A Brief Overview of the Science and Mechanics of Music [this talk was heavily dependent on visual demonstrations, so it will not be available as an audio.]

 

Sunday morning Anthony Courter finished the subject up with a Sermon entitled:
