Singing with the Men’s Chorus

I know it has been forever since I last posted anything of note, but hopefully I can make up for it with exciting new posts over the next few weeks. There is something extremely powerful about the music of the human voice. Though I never had any formal training in singing, my exposure to church choir along with studying the violin since I was six resulted gave me confidence in any sort of vocal endeavors.

This past weekend, I was able to participate in a Stake Conference, singing the 1st tenor part in the Men’s Chorus for an intermediate hymn and the closing song. While these are raw recordings, I really enjoyed the a cappella introduction to God Be With You ‘Til We Meet Again. Great music with inspirational speakers made for a good  weekend overall. Enjoy!

A short thought on the clashes between science and religion

I personally think scientific discovery and religious revelation aren’t mutually exclusive. Both have incredible merits when examined in the context of their own paradigms. Difficulties only seem to arise when religion attempts to perceive science in context of its own paradigm and vice versa. Continue reading
