So far we have looked at four different worldview lenses, as proposed by James Sire in The Universe Next Door. A fifth worldview lens is existentialism. Existentialism is similar to naturalism in many ways. Both views believe that matter exists eternally, but God does not exist. Death is matter ceasing to exist and personality is extinguished. Human reason is our means of knowing the universe. Ethics relates only to human beings, and history has no overarching purpose. However, there are a few distinctive aspects in existentialism.

The Benefits of Musical Enrichment

Music is an integral part of human culture and human history that touches each of us from the womb and throughout our lives. Musical compositions can express a wide range of moods and feelings and move the listener emotionally and intellectually. Music can entertain, inspire, and uplift. It forms a key element of worship. Music provides a rich backdrop for the most significant moments of our lives. Music composition and performance is a powerful vehicle that can move our spirits and demand a response as we listen, play, and sing. With such power and richness, music is certainly a blessing from God offered for our enrichment. Given the profound ways that music touches the human soul, expanding our homeschooling education plan with a selection of musical elements certainly makes sense.
