Todd E. Johnson, William K. and Delores S. Brehm Associate Professor of Worship, Theology, and the Arts, reflects on the misinterpretation of symbols and the importance of conversing with grace amidst misunderstanding and disagreement.
The theme of the 2019 Brehm Conference, “Worship, Theology, and the Arts in a Divided World,” focused on how worship, theology, and the arts might be vehicles for reconciliation and forge unity across divides—whether political or economic, racial or relational, linguistic or cultural, in the academy or in the public square, inside the church or outside of it. David M. Bailey, founder and executive director of Arrabon, was the conference’s keynote speaker. The celebration included lectures, conversations, worship and more, and was sponsored by the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts.
