About The Event
Dramatic Encounters with Jesus – with Martin Young
One of the projects that Martin is pursuing is the exploration of the arts as a fresh way of Bible teaching and experiencing the Holy Spirit. This is through harnessing the wonder and amazement that happens when we perceive in our spirit and emotions as much as we do with our intellect and reason. It’s why theatre, art, poetry, music, and dance have the capacity to captivate and influence, somehow enabling thinking and reason to be led by intrigue or revelation rather than their habitual assumptions.
We’ll look together at how our creativity can be celebrated and released and examine the ways in which signs, parables and the impact of wonder opens minds as well as leads to worship. Then we will try out a workshop where a text from John’s gospel is explored though performance, allowing it to come to life through scholarship, imagination and the senses; a theatrical version of what Martin is planning for a film series.
