  • The Road to the Future Runs through the Past: How Worship Communicates the Biblical Narrative (the Great Tradition)
    - Dr. Jim Hart 
    Robert Webber wrote, “Worship does God’s story.” What does that mean, and why does that  matter? If it does matter, how has God’s story formed the worship of God’s people over the past two thousand years? More to it, how has that worship formed God’s people into Christ-followers being “poured out for the life of the world”? Jim Hart, President of the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies will lead a discussion on this topic as we journey the “road to the future that runs through the past.”
