  • The Arts in Intercultural Discipleship

    • Authors: Jay Moon
      Pages: A60 – - A60 –
      Abstract: The ethnodoxology movement inspires us to consider how the arts can transform the Sunday worship experience. What about the other six days of the week though' What about the discipleship issues that need to be addressed Monday through Saturday' If these important issues do not get addressed, then people can easily get stuck in their spiritual growth. This article discusses how the arts are particularly suited for spiritual formation in various cultures by exploring the role of symbols, stories, dance, proverbs, music, and stories for intercultural discipleship. Examples are drawn from the Lakota Sicangu Native American culture as well as from the Builsa culture in Ghana, West  Africa.

  • Developing a Christian Philosophy of Music, by Dick Grout

    • Authors: Michael Balonek
      Pages: R11 – - R11 –
      Abstract: In 2023, Professor Dick Grout made public his locally published textbook, Developing a Christian Philosophy of Music. Grout originally wrote this to be a resource for classes that he and others were teaching in Upstate NY, and eventually published it in order to make it accessible to more people nationwide. In this book, he covers a wide range of topics involved with Christian music, from Copyright Law, to the debate regarding using older songs vs new songs, even down to the question, “what makes Christian music ‘Christian'’” Is it the lyrics, the composer, the performer, or something else' This book provides a new look at and fresh insight into topics that might be familiar to those in the realms of worship, music, culture, and their intersection.

  • Tell Me a Story (Part 1): Characteristics of the Art of Narrative

    • Authors: Susan Gary Walters
      Pages: A25 – - A25 –
      Abstract: Drawing from fields as diverse as philosophy, management, psychology, counseling, communications, education, the arts, and biblical studies, this article presents ideas about the nature of stories. The article lists twenty-one characteristics of stories, organized in eight categories: being human, attracting notice, connecting people, resonating with reality, shaping thinking and memory, engaging the senses, simplifying communication, and envisioning the future. Each section includes examples of how these characteristics come into play. Carefully thinking about the nature of stories equips people to use them in a wide array of contexts to communicate powerfully. Keywords: story, stories, narrative, communication, verbal art, verbal artform, oral tradition, narrative transportation All images were created by the author.

  • Tell Me a Story (Part 2): The Power of Stories for Diffusing Innovations

    • Authors: Susan Gary Walters
      Pages: A43 – - A43 –
      Abstract: Stories are powerful tools for change. Providing practical illustrations of contexts where stories contribute to the process of bringing about change, this article explains the significant roles stories play in the innovation-decision process, the process through which people pass from finding out about an innovation to deciding whether or not to adopt it. Stories can raise awareness about the existence of an innovation. They can also present knowledge about the underlying notions of an innovation or tell positive experiences of peers who have adopted it. Additionally, stories give people a chance to try out an innovation vicariously and envision alternative, appealing futures. Stories functioning in these ways are particularly useful during the early stages of the innovation-decision process. In later stages, other kinds of stories are useful: ones that describe the parts of an innovation or display details about a new technology; ones that position the innovation in the local context and demonstrate how it relates to existing structures; and stories featuring opinion leaders using the innovation. Recognizing the benefits and challenges of using stories equips people to diffuse new ideas more smoothly, including across cultures. By carefully considering the power of stories, anticipating occasions for their use, and learning their local artforms, people can better use stories to support the spread of helpful innovations. Keywords: story, stories, narrative, diffusion of innovations, change, narrative persuasion, narrative transportation, verbal art, verbal artforms Acknowledgements: I am grateful to my colleague Heidi Cobbey who read multiple early drafts and encouraged me when I got stuck. I would also like to thank Katie Frost and Dennis Malone for their input and insight, which sharpened my thinking and strengthened this article.
