“I Can’t Explain”: Moravian Identity and the Music of The Who
The music and lyrics of The Who raise questions of individual and group identity, the nature of love and power of music itself. Though these issues are also fundamental to Moravians, we often have difficulty talking about them with others. Can The Who help us explain when others ask “Who Are You” or help us respond “Let My Love Open the Door” when we encounter those locked up in suffering? This presentation will compare lyrics by The Who with well-known Moravian hymns and look at parallels between the creative lives of the members of The Who and the leaders of the 18th century Moravian Church, in the hopes of building bridges between the faith we hold so dear and a world that is looking for Good News.
