Feb. 6th-9th, 2020. BIBLICAL IMAGINATION WORKSHOP AND CONCERT. Topic- Hesed. Westminster Presbyterian Church. 

Join us for weekly conversations commenting on the Bible, looking at the creative process and discussing how to live out our walk with Christ in community, tied together with music from acoustic session performances in a 55 minute podcast.



In a career that took off with his debut album, First Light (1981), Michael Card has recorded over 38 albums, authored over 28 books, is host to a weekly podcast, and has written for a wide range of magazines. He has penned such favorites as “El Shaddai”, “Love Crucified Arose”, and “Immanuel,”. The popularity of his work seemed a stark contrast to his goal in life, to simply and quietly teach the Bible.

Although music provided him the opportunity to share insight gained through extensive research, writing songs alone limited what he felt called to share. Card would frequently agonize over having to condense the vast depth and richness of scripture into a three-minute song. He then began to write articles and books on topics that captured his imagination through conversations with Bible teachers, friends and contemporaries in both Christian music and the academic community, and continues to write to this day.

Michael lives in Franklin, Tennessee, where, with a group of close friends, he pursues racial reconciliation and neighborhood renewal, and is currently writing on the details of the life of Jesus. He and his wife, Susan, have four children and two grandchildren. Michael travels frequently each year, teaching and sharing his music at Biblical Imagination Conferences,

and also facilitates annual Life of Christ tours to Israel.

Maybe Jesus loved him because  of his youth, for he was the youngest of the disciples.  Jesus loved him perhaps because he was the most childlike of the Twelve.  There might be a thousand reasons why Jesus loved John; of these we can only guess.

Through the story of Thomas, John preserves the legitimacy of doubt as the partner of faith.  As Pascal said, only he who doubts can truly believe.  Throughout the ministry, Jesus has sought followers who have the faith to believe without seeing.

The Gospel is not meant for our enjoyment or to satisfy our curiosity but that we might believe that Jesus is the Christ and thereby have life in His name.
