Saturday lecture: “Sacred Profanity

Where are the lines between the sacred and the profane?  And what are the costs of where we draw them? In this lecture, David LaMotte will examine the current state of the religious and secular music industries and some of the social, economic and theological implications of our cultural choices regarding how we categorize music.

David LaMotte is an award-winning songwriter and itinerant peace activist. A veteran of ten CDs and 2,000 concerts on four continents, he suspended his eighteen-year music career at its peak in 2008 to accept a Rotary World Peace Fellowship to study International Relations, Peace and Conflict Resolution at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. As part of that study, he also spent three months in rural Andhra Pradesh, India working with a Gandhian development organization.

In 2004, David and his wife Deanna founded PEG Partners, a small non-profit organization that supports schools and libraries in Guatemala. He continues to volunteer as the Program Director for PEG. He is also a consultant on Peace and Justice at the North Carolina Council of Churches. LaMotte serves on the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) Nobel Peace Prize Nomination Committee, working with twelve people on three continents to determine the AFSC’s nomination each year.

LaMotte is a public speaker and workshop leader, offering Worldchanging 101 workshops around the world for more than a decade. Touring full-time for nearly two decades, LaMotte developed a large and loyal following around the world.
