Narrative Worship

Sat 4:00pm - 4:50pm

Venue: River


Learn to use a simple story map that shapes personal experience or sacred text into meaningful and undeniable narratives that can enhance worship, connect people and build storytelling skills in your community. Life experience is one way we get to know and worship the God who shows up among us. Dr. Ron King will explain the spiritual and neurological basis for storytelling and guide you in developing your own story through interaction with other participants. Singer/songwriter Neal Stephens will present his own story in song. Ken Medema will compose songs from the stories you create. Neal and Ken demonstrate the importance of story and the arts in approaching the mystery of the god who meets us and exists beyond theological description. Also, discover how to tell your story along the Via Negativa
