The Jazz Theologian

I'm here in rainy (and kind of cold) San Diego for the  National Pastors Convention.

My book, Finding the Groove:  Composing a Jazz-Shaped Faith,  is being released here (and will available everywhere beginning in March).  

I'm teaching two workshops.  The first is on my book and the other is about Marginal Christianity. Here are the 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 here as well…
