DT at the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Symposium
The good people at CICW have invited me to present a seminar at their upcoming symposium. January 28-30, 2010. I'm excited to be there. I've known of the symposium for years and I have the greatest respect for John Witvliet, its head honcho. (Sidenote: my two areas of concentrate at Duke are theological aesthetics and liturgical theology. Witvliet's PhD from Notre Dame was in liturgical studies and theology. It's no wonder I like the man so much.)
My seminar will ask "What is a successful artist?" and will consider ways that pastors and artists can collaborate in this work of helping artists integrate and flourish. Other speakers on the slate include Marva Dawn, Richard Mouw, Cornelius Plantinga and his kin Neal Plantinga, Jeremy Begbie, and other fine folk with Dutch-sounding last names.
If you meet him, tell him 'thanks' for me.
Maybe I should be worried about the fact that these books appeal to me. I need to find some books to love about sunshine and flowers. Any recommendations?
