University Christian Church, as part of its participation in the Lilly Peer Learning Project for Worship and Music at the Church Music Institute, will host a Panel Discussion on the topic, “Expansive Language: Theological and Musical Implications for Church Music” at Bass Conference Center - Brite Divinity School on Saturday, January 12, 2019, from 10:30am-2:00pm.
Rev. Dr. Mary Louise Bringle (Professor of Religious Studies at Brevard College) will be the moderator and the lead panelist. Other panelists include: Rev. Dr. Newell Williams (President and Professor of Modern and American Church History at Brite Divinity School), Rev. Cyndy W. Twedell (Minister of Nurture at University Christian Church, Fort Worth), and Rev, Timothy Binkley (Archivist at Perkins School of Theology, SMU).
Panelists will be asked to consider fundamental questions prior to the event where they will share their views with each other and the audience. At lunch, the audience will have an opportunity to submit written questions for our panelists to address in the afternoon session.
We will host a separate breakfast session regarding music copyright law presented by Enrique "Rick" Sanchez, an attorney with Whitaker Chalk, Fort Worth. This may be of special interest to local church musicians.
Finally, Dr. Bringle has extensive success and expertise as a hymn writer. She will teach a hymn writing workshop in the late afternoon to any interested parties.
These events are all free and open to the public, with the exception of a $10 boxed lunch. Please register here.
