Description

Just six years after coming to faith — and with no background in art, music, poetry or liturgy — Heather Choate Davis created an original arts-based compline called The Renaissance Service(TM). These lush and Spirit-filled evenings ended up attracting worshippers from hours away, and led to an invitation by Image Journal to be the liturgist at The Glen Workshop in Santa Fe. In this talk, she'll discuss the creation and impact of the service, why it reached so many people who didn't otherwise go to church and edified so many who did, and how a local church can create simple moments of divine silence using art, music, and poetry. Davis hopes that attendees will grow in their awareness of how the arts invite all people "to gaze on the beauty of the Lord" (Psalm 27:4) and draw them closer to God.
