Keywords

Day of Common Learning

Description

Understanding Psalm 137: 3-4 as a call to engagement and Don Quixote’s obsession with the imaginary as a quest for beauty and the good life, this session invites participants to consider how we can become enduring healing agents at SPU and elsewhere while we await the King. We have been called out and dispositionally re/formed through worship to sing the Lord’s song wherever we may be. What does it mean to sing the “Lord’s song” in our context and who is our audience? Could the “strange land” refer to the good but broken world in which we live? Taking a cue from Don Quixote, what do we do with the brokenness that surrounds us? How can imaginativity guide us from ugliness to beauty? Given the rival liturgies that compete for our loves, what shall we do to ensure that our engagement endures?
