Rock n' Roll and the Meaning of Life
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Renowned Irish Times Journalist John Waters Presents a Journey into Rock Music
DENVER, CO (January 16, 2013) - Is rock 'n roll simply raucous noise, the music of youthful rebellion, or does it in fact tell us the most important things about ourselves?
This is the question world-famous Irish Times columnist and rock critic John Waters will take up in a presentation titled "Rock and Roll and the Desire for the Infinite," to be held at the St. Cajetan's Center in Denver at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 21, and sponsored by Crossroads Cultural Center. Waters will share his personal investigation into rock music, the longing it expresses for the mysterious "infinite," and what it reveals about the human condition. He will build upon the enormous exhibit he presented last summer at the Meeting for Friendship Among Peoples in Rimini, Italy (the largest annual cultural festival in the world, attended by some 800,000 people). The journalist personally knows several famous rock artists, including Bono from U2.
The event is open to the public and free of charge. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT CROSSROADS CULTURAL CENTER:
Crossroads Cultural Center was established in 2004 by members of Communion and Liberation who shared an interest in the relationship between religion and culture. Crossroads seeks to explore the ways in which Christianity, by revealing the ultimate meaning of reality, gives new impulse to the human desire for knowledge.
Our goal is to offer opportunities for education, making it possible to look with openness, curiosity, and critical judgment at every aspect of reality. Our ideals are summed up by the suggestion of Saint Paul: “Test everything; retain what is good.” In our experience, the mark of a Christian culture is that it fosters interest in the full spectrum of reality, rather than focusing on a predetermined set of “religious” issues. A sign of its authenticity is the ability, or at least the desire, to encounter people from all walks of life, and to look for and appreciate everything that is true, good, and worthwhile in the various expressions of human life. These expressions include science, the arts, politics, journalism and the media, theology, history, economy, sociology, and education. Such openness and desire are the fruit of the education received in the Roman Catholic Church. More information may be found at www.crossroadsculturalcenter.org.
