The Jazz Theologian

A jazz theologian is someone who balances classical faith with a jazz-shaped faith.  

As we take the stage our ensemble can know that:

-We are practicing Christians.  Having spent sufficient time in the woodshed learning the standards we now syncopate, improvise and respond to the call of a love supreme.

-We creatively embrace unresolved tension as we walk with Christ and invite others to join the mystery.

-We have time rather than time having us.  Developing our ear so that we might serve others like Jesus.

-We seek a composed life that is guided by the eternal melody of the Living Word of God as we add our own voice.

-We sing the blues so as not to waste any pain that may come our way.

-We follow in the footsteps of our "kind of blue" Christ, offering our lives as statements to the renaissance that only he can bring.
