Patrick Miller on Who the music points to 👆

“He’s the one the music points to. Music always points beyond itself to the creator, to the orderer!”

This one came up *unexpectedly* on my feed and it was an interesting look into the idea that there’s something beautiful and mathematical in music that points directly to God the creator.

I’m not a big music person. Well, maybe I should rephrase that, I’m not a *cultured* music person. I got called out in a meeting before for listening to Hootie and the Blowfish. Someone literally said, “We’re in the 2000’s, nobody listens to Hootie anymore” to which I replied “Old man and me is a masterpiece and you can pry it from my cold dead walkman!” I know the references don’t match up but whatever!

ANYWAY…this sermon was super interesting; Pastor Patrick spoke a lot about Bach, many complicated musical terms were referenced, and I was captivated to see how it ended. I mean, as you can imagine, it ended by glorifying God and pointing our feats of musical mastery directly to Him but there’s a subplot that was interesting to learn of as well. Here’s the link to it on YouTube:
