The Harley Effect

Rev. Julia Hamilton

We’ve been thinking about sound a lot here lately. I’ve heard discussion of the need for a new sound system since I arrived several years ago, but I hadn’t really given much thought to the specifics of it until a few months ago, when we began meeting with sound engineers to find out what it would cost for a new system. I began to learn more about speaker arrays and reverberation time, and I started reading up on how sound and space interact, and what emerged was not just a set of technical needs about the amplifier that no longer works or the sound board that is out of date, but a perspective on sound and our relationship with sound that has deepened my understanding of this space, both physically and spiritually, that we share. It’s one of the things I love about being a Unitarian Universalist – the whole world is open for investigation and reflection.
