Improv Church: The Spiritual Opportunities of Making Things Up Together
Saturday, 2:00pm | Library
In the beginning, God created. When we do likewise, intimate communion with the Creator – and also one another – is possible. In this highly-interactive gathering, worship artist Tom Ryberg hosts improvisational spaces that meet at the intersection of personal, creative expression and rich, spiritual community. Drawing on concepts from experimental music, queer theology, and comedy improv, participants will experience good, creative play together, in the form of sound, humor, art, and contemplation. Absolutely no expertise required, though a willingness to try new, weird things is definitely a plus!
Tom Ryberg is a musician and pastor who specializes in keyboard performance, music composition, and worship design. He holds degrees in composition, theology, and special education. He has a spouse who blessedly holds down the fort while he rehearses with his jazz fusion group, as well as two kids, 6 and 2, who teach him more about joyful improvisation every day.
