If you’re in the Nashville area, we want to invite you to join our friends at Covenant Seminary on March 3rd and 4th for this special seminar led by Denis Haack of the Ransom Fellowship. Professor Haack was mentored by Francis and Edith Schaeffer and he brings a love for music, film, and visual art that engages the Church both in how to appreciate these mediums as good art as well as how to engage with them as communication about the truth of God’s world. Denis is the author of The Rest of Success: What the World Didn’t Tell You About Having It All.
We’re delighted to be a sponsor of the event and we’re offering a huge discount to Rabbit Room readers. The seminar costs $48 to attend, but if you use the code “rabbitroom” during registration you’ll get a $33 discount, bringing the registration down to just $15. That’s a great deal for a two-day seminar!
Here’s a description of what’s in store:
Human culture began at creation, receiving God’s blessing as part of what was “very good.” Then the fall fractured human creativity from God’s glory, so that now culture is both for blessing and for curse. As God’s redeemed people we can learn to be discerning rather than defensive or reactionary, making and responding to culture under Christ’s Lordship and so anticipate the restoration of all things.
In an age of disbelief when Christian faith is seen as unattractive and unnecessary, when hostility to faith is increasing, every believer can demonstrate that the God they serve is the God of truth, goodness and beauty beyond our wildest imagining. In this class we will begin a conversation about seeing culture and human creativity biblically, developing skill in cultural discernment, and being faithful in ordinary life as a witness to the gospel in our increasingly diverse world.
