National Pastors Convention (Feb. 2009)

posted by Robert Gelinas

I'm looking forward to leading two workshops at the next National Pastors Convention.

Here are the workshop descriptions…

Finding the Groove:  Composing a Jazz-Shaped Faith

You don’t have to be a musician to experience the renaissance of a jazz-shaped faith.  Jazz is more than music and it’s the more that we can creatively apply to prayer, scripture and church life.  The concepts of call & response, syncopation and improvisation allow us to experience ensemble community—life in concert with and for our God.

Leading a Marginal Church:

Jesus said that his gospel was good news to the marginalized and the miserable, the poor and the poor in spirit.  This session will focus on the values, convictions, habits and practices of leaders who hear the cry of the vulnerable and call their congregations to spend themselves on behalf of the poor.

 

Looking forward to seeing a lot of my blog friends there…

Is this going to be recorded? I would love to hear it, but don’t think I’ll be able to fly out and be in attendance.

I would concur with Zach Nielsen. You want to make the audio recordings of your presentations available in some form…
God Bless…

Pastor Robert,
I agree with the previous posters. It would be wonderful if the tapes could be made available to us.

Hey Robert,
I sure miss getting to Denver and CCC.
Nonetheless, your Jazz theology is having an impact. While with a client in San Diego last night, I was able to attend a jazz concert and initiate some engaging conversation regarding viewing the distinctives of jazz as applicable to the faith walk. Thanks.
FYI, the key musician was http://www.robwhitlock.com/welcome.html
