As St. Francis, a follower of Jesus, searched for his true identity within and around him,”I Am” this month of August encourages reflection on life’s deeper realities in the summer sun.
The musician and Michigan native reflected that “Many people on our planet derive their sense of self from the things that they do, accomplish, or not accomplish. … we may be these things, but beneath the surface of the waves there is a great depth, an entire universe unfolding through us. It’s the same life that we were before we were any of these things, it’s untouched by anything that has happened in the past and anything that will happen in the future. By seeing the formless in others, that which is within ourselves, the very thing that animates every living being, that is true love.”
Denison learned to play piano at age 6, and later learned saxophone and guitar. His songwriting reflects a humble nature, and shares uplifting thoughts. 100% of the proceeds from his album Surface will be going to Friends of Grand Rapids parks.
“We want to present our life as a viable option. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music.” said Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations for the Franciscan order.
Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in dioceses throughout the United States.
