America Tonight with Kate Delaney features Kenneth Powe, skilled musician and author of the book “Visions and Dreams: Are They Communication from God, or Just Us?”
In this interview, Kate Delaney interviews author Kenneth Powe as he talks about his career as a musician, playing the piano all over the world. Aside from this, Kenneth discusses the mysterious phenomenon of dreams and their biblical significance in our daily lives, ultimately attempting to address an age-old question – what exactly are dreams? Could they be random apparitions of our subconscious minds manifesting in our sleep, or something more?
The Early Days
Well, actually, like most small children, I took music lessons when I was eight years old, but I didn’t like them. My mom made me go. I wasn’t a very outgoing kid, so the piano became my friend. I just kept at it until I started liking it – that’s pretty much how it happened.
A Favorite Piece of Music
There isn’t one in particular – I’m not the type of person who restricts themselves to a single genre of music. I just kind of think of it all as music. It’s all music to me. I have lots of different favorites- I guess it depends on what time period you’re talking about, what country, what style. I love jazz piano, and I have many jazz influences from the golden age, so I do lean towards that. But the classics, you can never go wrong with those either. I loved the romantic era of classical music – I played a lot of it when I was taking lessons. If you play classical piano, there’s so many influences of that style in jazz.
Why Ken Wrote the Book
I was just thinking about dreams and how dreams occur in the Bible, and about how there were so many people in the bible who got communicated with through dreams, and I thought, does God still do that? There’s no definitive answer to that question, so I decided to look around and check out different opinions on that subject- and there’s so many different ones out there. Although none are really that consistent with answering the question about the divine nature of dreams, it makes me wonder – could they really be the communication of God?
Ken’s Experience in the Research Stage of Writing his Book
It was very fun. I enjoy a challenge. I like stretching and challenging myself intellectually. It’s what I love best about being a college professor; I love doing research and teaching. I really got into that. I was in my element when I decided to research a topic strictly for my own curiosity, not for any occupation or any requirement – and it was liberating in that regard.
What Ken Wants People to Take Away from Reading his Book
Well, since dreams are universal experiences, we should consider very carefully whether or not the dreams we have are God trying to tell us something. I f I think I have a divine dream, should I talk to someone about it? Who should I talk to? Should I find my own answers? I hope the reader takes the topic to heart so he or she may delve deeper into answering that question themselves.
She’s very supportive. Since I’m into a lot of other things, it probably didn’t surprise her very much that I attempted to write a book for the first time. I don’t think she quite believed me when I told her I was going to write a book. Nevertheless, she’s been wonderful about it; she’s been great. She’s been telling her friends and coworkers about it, and they’ve been calling and messaging me saying their congratulations and all – it was heartwarming.
