”Women’s work” is often repetitive and seemingly thankless. The work of our spiritual lives can sometimes seem this way, too—repetitious and rule-bound, with distant or uncertain rewards. This presentation will use musical examples to discover new ways to see these necessary tasks and habits and draw strength from music itself and from the lessons it teaches about rhythm, discipline, and grace. Most musical examples will be provided by audience participation, so come prepared to sing! Liz Davis Maxfield, cellist for the acclaimed folk music group Fiddlesticks, will provide accompaniment and perform several pieces.
