Ancient Future Worship for Today: Exploring Life in the Fifth Dimension


What do Harry Potter, Star Wars, and authentic Biblical worship have in common? Each one demands that we exercise our imagination, use our creativity and embrace the conviction that there is a supernatural dimension to our lives. But there are some big differences … the first two are brilliant works of fiction that entertain us for a season but the last one claims to be an expression of God’s revealed truth that promises to transform our lives for eternity. In his presentation Bishop Minns will explore the ways in which Biblical worship can expand our imagination, employ our creativity and lead to transformed lives.


Bishop, Convocation of Anglicans in North America

The Rt. Rev. Martyn Minns is an English-born American bishop who has long been a  prominent voice for truth and beauty within the Anglican communion. Prior to becoming a bishop, he served as rector of Truro Church in Fairfax, Virginia; and All Angels Church in New York City, where he worked with a heavily artistic congregation to shape and direct creative gifts to the glory of God. We are honored to have Bishop Minns' articulate voice leading our conversation about the role of the church in redeeming the imagination.
