The Colloquium is the lively enterprise at the heart of the Institute's
mission. At this weekly meeting, scholars, ministers, church musicians,
performers, and artists -- present and future -- engage each other.
In this space, we attempt to make more permeable the natural frontiers
of our disciplines. Here, at the very least, musicians and artists
can learn of the liturgical and theological contexts from which
the tools of their trade come. Scholars and ministers gain a much
broader understanding for how theology is done beyond the saying
and writing of texts.
This conversation reinvents itself with every new topic and every
new group of students, and with this journal and DVD, we extend
this conversation to you, our readers and viewers. We hope that
you will find truth and insight between the covers of this second
volume of the Colloquium Journal, and that this knowledge will help
you in your work, whatever it may be.
