Why John Denver Sunday?

A message from Jon West

When I was growing up a country boy about 7 miles west of Junction City, I felt music all around me—flowing down from the wide-open sky, from the forest-covered hills behind our century-old farmhouse, and always from the western horizon where I'd often watch the last glow of daylight fading behind the coastal range. I didn't realize then that I was feeling the song of my divine Self—that pure essence of Being which is the very ground of existence.

As a little boy in the early 1970's, I believed no musician on the scene captured the song in my heart better than John Denver.  I know this may be hard to understand for those who immersed themselves in more sophisticated music that reflected the angst and rebellion of the times. But sometimes if we allow ourselves to release the complex trappings of society, we rediscover a connection to things simple and pure, "like the mountains in springtime, like a storm in the desert," or "the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake." We find that the child who once walked a forest path wide-eyed with wonder instead of glancing at a smart phone still lives within us.  It's that child of happy wonder and loving affection for all life that came through John Denver. 

Over my 54 years on this planet, I've often had a vision of sharing a concert of John's music and message.  With the help of our wonderful Unity band and singers, it's happening this Sunday...and all I can say is "Yee haw!".

In oneness,
Jon
