In Search of the Lost Chord
I know I haven’t written anything in my blog for a long time and I can understand why no one would be looking for a new entry. But, here it is –just in time for Christmas. In 1968, when the Moody Blues released the song, “In Search of the Lost Chord,” I sensed the spirituality of the song, but couldn’t conceptualize anything. I now equate the Lost Chord with Jesus. The Lost Chord resolves the dissonance of creation. Whatever is not right with the universe is made right by the resolving chord. The Christmas story is the story of how that resolving chord came into the world. When you think about it, the chord that resolves a dissonance in music is there from the very beginning –hence the Gospel of John begins, “In the beginning was the Word (logos).” Jesus freaks like to think about what that says about Jesus. I like to think what it says about God. Merry Christmas.
