Belton, Texas –The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor College of Visual and Performing Arts is proud to announce the first lecture in its series C3 – Conversations in Christianity + Culture for spring semester. The conversation will center around the project Every Moment Holy. It will be held Tuesday, February 4, at 3:30 p.m. in the Baugh Performance Hall of the Sue & Frank Mayborn Performing Arts Center. This event is free and open to the public.
This event qualifies as a Fine Arts Experience (FAE) credit for UMHB students. The Fine Arts Experience program is designed to help students gain an appreciation for the fine arts in many forms during their time on campus. To this end, students are required to attend at least one designated Fine Arts Experience event each semester.
UMHB Provost, Dr. John Vassar, will lead the discussion with Andrew Peterson and Douglas McKelvey. Later that evening, Peterson, a recording artist and songwriter, will hold a concert at 7:30 p.m. back in Baugh Performance Hall. This separate event does require tickets, which cost $20 for adults and just $10 for children and seniors.
Every Moment Holy is a book of liturgies for the ordinary events of daily life. For example, some of its passages include “A Liturgy for Feasting with Friends,” “A Liturgy for Laundering,” and “A Liturgy for the First Hearthfire of the Season.” These are reminders that every moment can be imbued with sacred purpose, even and especially when business can make it hard to notice.
For more than twenty years, Peterson has been changing lives in four-minute increments. In the city of Nashville where music is an industry, Peterson has forged his own path, refusing the artistic compromises that often come with chasing album sales and radio singles and instead created a long line of songs that ache with sorrow, joy and integrity.
