The Colloquium is drawing to a close – tomorrow we have the final Mass and a concluding brunch. We’re getting to the bottom of our inch-thick music packet, and people are giving their heartfelt thanks for such a wonderful and spiritually filling experience.
I had a number of great discussions with people today. One with a fellow schola director in town, about how we can get our groups together in collaboration to do some neat things. Singing music at Mass in the various parishes, putting on a broader chant workshop, and so on.
I had an interview with the group, Corpus Christi Watershed, who is doing all the incredible video work for this Colloquium. If you haven’t seen the first video they published, make sure to check this out:
I don’t know if they’ll use any of my interview, but it was great to have a chance to talk about what I’ve gotten out of this week.
I also had a discussion with my roommate here, with a very interesting twist: The combination of sacred music with my interest in coaching. It turns out that the spiritual journey isn’t so different from the life journeys that I hope to help people with through coaching.
What an unexpected and delightful turn!
