    Improvising Church with Jazz Musician & Theologian, Dr Mark Glanville

    Improvising Church with Jazz Musician & Theologian, Dr Mark Glanville

    Join us with Regent College’s Dr Mark Glanville as we discuss his new text, “Improvising Church”.
    Dr Drew Hart wrote of Mark’s new book,
    “Improvising Church is a harmony of scriptural insight and pastoral wisdom, soulfully explored. Drawing from the metaphors of jazz, Glanville calls Western churches in post-Christian contexts to embrace an improvisational journey shaped by the biblical narrative and the perception of artists within incarnational community that loves their place and its people. Like a musician in sync with our contextual rhythm, Glanville urges us to embrace our interconnectedness with creation, tying that to the need to confront the legacies of colonialism with courageous solidarity. This book resonates deeply, hits all the right notes, and will inspire you to embrace a new, transformative song to improvise with for our twenty-first-century witness."
    Jarrod McKenna has said,
    "Mark Glanville writes with a kind of humility, curiosity, creativity, and compassion that are not merely desired but required when learning from traditions that you've been graciously grafted into—be it from Moses or Miles Davis, Elijah or Ella Fitzgerald, Nathanael or Nina Simone, John Coltrane or Jesus, the Christ. Mark has experienced a 'love supreme' and is inviting us to take giant steps of communal improvisation and imagine somethin' else, an alternative to Christendom and its colonial legacy, something that looks like Jesus, something that is the shape of things to come."

**My favorite theological podcast **

This podcast *and community* have played the biggest role in my evolution as a Jesus follower— from one who was taught to “swallow” biblical interpretation without questioning or doubts to one who is beginning to “chew” it through critical thinking and kind & curious examining of the soul. This changes everything folks ✨ Come join!

Gives me life and infuses me with hope

I probably can’t overstate what Inverse is for me at this moment. In a time when I feel like I am barely holding on to my faith, this podcast always draws out those brimming hopeful tears that sting your eyes when something is unexpectedly and breathtakingly beautiful. As I reject the misogyny and white supremacy upon which what I knew as Christianity was built, you guys are helping recover and rebuild something truly glorious.

Always challenged and encouraged

I don’t exactly remember how I first connected to this podcast, but I am glad I did. I have found the non-violent atonement theory podcast episodes to be encouraging, challenging and helpful in my understanding of atonement. Grateful for the voices that are helping me hear a reading of scripture that is taking me forward.
