A Long and Winding Road: A Personal Reflection on the Life and Music of the Beatles

On March 4, 2014, Glenn Henricksen will present a personal reflection on life and the music of the Beatles.

More than fifty years after the formation of a rock group named The Beatles and more than forty years after their demise, their music is still listened to, analyzed, written about, and above all, still moves the listener. Why? What is there about their work that continues to have such an impact? Mr. Henricksen will share why he feels the music has moved him and will continue to affect us all in the future. He was first introduced to the depth and meaning of the Beatles’ music more than forty-five years ago and has pondered, studied, used, and enjoyed it ever since.

Glenn Henricksen (pictured at right) taught religious studies at Mount Saint Mary College, and chemistry at Mount Saint Mary Academy high school. Born in Seattle, Washington, and raised in Lookout Mountain, Tennessee, he went to high school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He obtained a bachelor’s of chemistry from Carnegie-Mellon University, a master’s of theology from both the Biblical Seminary in New York and Princeton Theological Seminary, and a PhD of religious studies from New York University. Henricksen served several churches as pastor, assistant pastor, and supply pastor, and spent 18 years as Protestant Chaplain at the Letchworth Village Developmental Center. He is now retired and resides in the Town of Newburgh, NY.

The Steinthal Lecture Series was established in memory of former Mount professor and noted physician Dr. Eric Steinthal, who taught religion, philosophy, literature, and art at the College for 27 years.

This event is free and open to the public.
