Jazz Sanctuary at First Church

“The Jazz of Limitless Space – The Kingdom Within” will be the theme of this Sunday’s Jazz Sanctuary – First Church/Third Sunday at 1 p.m. at Concord’s First Congregational Church (corner of North Main and Washington streets). Ancient religious wisdom and modern neuroscience alike point to exciting possibilities for exploring the inner world, and Pastor Emilia Halstead and Tim Wildman will lead a discussion about the spiritual dimension of these possibilities. Local jazz musician Tim Sink will join vocalist Emilia Halstead and the WildVine Jazz Sanctuary in creating music that leads further inward – and swings! The half-hour jazz set starts at 1, with Jazz Worship Experience beginning at 1:30. There is no admission, and “wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!”
