ULOG 29: Freewrite Day 346 Surprising Music in My Life

I do not listen to music much anymore. It distracts me from my work and I am working most of the time. But all of the sudden I do have music in my life again in a couple of unexpected ways and both are religious.

I live next to a big mosque here in Kuala Lumpur. Therefore I hear the “call to prayer” five times a day if I am here and awake. I love this! I use it as a “call to exercise” and get up and move if I am working. I find the sound very soothing. I have no idea what is being sung, but it is repetitive and sticks in my head.

And on the Christian front, I am attending a wonderful church service now that starts with about an hour of music each Sunday. As a traditional Episcopalian, this is very different from the traditional hymns I am used to. There is a band playing with guitars, keyboards, drums, and singers. The music is loud, uplifting, rock-and-roll-ish, and everyone in the congregation is singing along as it goes. Thankfully the words are projected on the wall in case you don’t know them.

In my nomadic life, I have attended many different churches over the years, but nothing has prepared me for this experience. Although I am in Malaysia, the only thing I can relate this to is how I imagine a African American church in the Southern US to be. After an hour of all this singing, the sermons come through in a whole different way than I am used to and the words of them take a very direct path to my soul.

I love every expression of church that I have ever attended but your church sounds like my kind of church @fitinfun. I'm from Africa and we do joyous noise well...

I hope you can come here one day. I found a wonderful church home, or maybe they found me :)

That would be awesome @fitinfun! Your journey to Kuala Lumpur has inspired me in so many ways. Let's hope that it happens in the not too distant future.

So glad to read of you enjoying the church and the music @fitinfun! Glad you didn't find us over-"crazy", as some may have seen us that way :P

I don't think any body will get away from music in ones life. Because music will be there in everybody life. May be it is not a conventional song or chanting it may be in other forms like sound of a waterfall, voices of birds, child cry. It is that kind of music where we don't concentrate much. But these sounds will also have some music. Thats he reason our cell phone ringtones came with these type of sound for some 15-18 years back. Thanks for refreshing my memory with some old experiences. kcherukuri from kryptonia.

Music is part of life. It will be very boring without them.

I enjoy listening to YouTube in the background instead of music :)

Music can make our life interesting and it can be part of our daily lives. ;)
