Event Description:
DESCRIPTION: New Jersey born singersongwriter Bruce Springsteen (b. 1949) has rocked audiences worldwide since his breakout album Born To Run (1975) and was catapulted into superstardom with Born In The U.S.A. (1984) when he challenged an American patriotism that neglected America’s Vietnam veterans. Since then Springsteen, a self-proclaimed lapsed Catholic, has championed social justice while singing out on behalf of refugees, migrants, AIDS victims, day laborers, the chronically poor, and other oppressed groups. This course off ers a close examination of Springsteen’s lyrics and music (ca 1970 to 2020), explores his Catholic background, and discusses how these intersect with Christ’s instruction to take care of “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40). Session 1: Making the Sacred Profane and the Profane Sacred; Session 2: “And I believe in the Promised Land”; and Session 3: “There’s a New World Coming, I can see the light.” Join us, listen, and experience for yourself “the power, the glory, (and) the ministry of rock ‘n’ roll” in Springsteen’s music.
