You may or may not know Rob Bell, depending on what circles you read/write/create within. He’s the founding pastor of Mars Hill in Grandville, MI, (very funky website design) and the creator of the Nooma series. But he’s a great thinker about arts and culture in addition to faith, and he’s speaking next weekend at (not a church) Berklee College of Music. His talk is part of the Drop Like Stars tour, promoting his new book which explores the relationship between suffering and art.
How many of the most significant moments in your life, he asks, came not because it all went right, but because it fell apart? And why is it that these moments are the ones which lead us to create?
I was so excited to hear about this tour coming to Boston, and then quickly so disappointed to realize I’ll be out of town when it occurs. If you go, please post about how it is!
Rob Bell speaks at the Berklee Performance Center (136 Mass Ave, Boston) on Friday, September 18, 2009, 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 through the Berklee website / Ticketmaster.
