Sacred Threads | Episode 15 | Deacon John Moore

My link to Deacon John Moore comes directly from spending time with Pat Green, who you met in episode 2 of The Magic Hour. Since filming her episode, Pat and I have continued meeting and planning her living jazz funeral second line she will hold this October. During one of our meetings, Pat shared an interest to raise funds with any donations to her party for the Musician’s Union of New Orleans. She wanted to reach out to the current president of the union, who I found out is Deacon John Moore. I called his number listed online and was greeted in the friendliest way. I shared the purpose of my call with Deacon John, and we set up a time to meet for lunch with Pat Green.

You've Got That Soul In You | Episode 2 | Patricia Green

It was our handshake that sparked this connection. You see, Pat Green did not let go of my hands once we shook. In fact, after about a minute, I didn’t want to let go. I could have held her hands even longer. No words were necessary in this instant. All of my grandparents have passed, and for a moment, I felt reconnected with all of them. Pat’s smile drew me over to her, as she stood with her daughter Holly and son-in-law Javier on Jefferson Ave, preparing to watch her first Mardi Gras parade ever.

The Magic Hour

The startup journey has taught us many lessons over the last seven years, including that nothing is more powerful than the importance of human connection. Connections, which can happen in a moment, influence critical decisions like where to attend college, what passions to pursue for a career, and what relationships to engage. Inspired by Welcome To College, this weekly web series explores the power of human connection and the sacred threads of life operating at every given moment of time. It is created to inspire campus tour guides in their roles as leaders who are making a positive impact on the lives of prospective students and families daily. We believe a single sentence spoken at the right time can change someone's life forever.
