I am pretty stoked to be involved in Kelowna’s first Levite summit coming up soon Feb 15 -16th. It’s essentially a gathering of musicians, dancers and visual artists who are interested in ways of exploring their Art both in the faith context (church) and also in the wider community. I have had a heart for this kind of thing for as long as I can remember. I was originally inspired by the ideas that the author, Francis Schaeffer shared when he said that it is artists who translate lofty theological and philosophical concepts to the general public. I really believe that the Arts are a powerful way to share ideas with others. I am especially looking forward to playing music with some great musicians and learning some new stuff from some really talented communicators.
