Dolly Parton’s Colorful Coat, Rural Creativity, and You
July 12, 20194:00 pm–4:50 pm
Rural communities are often labeled as backwards waste places by much of society. However, within rural communities there lies a collection of values that, when embraced and infused with the Holy Spirit, can allow for a creative hope. Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors” serves a model for a rural faith formation as well as personal spiritual formation that can foster resilience, imagination, and new understandings of human value. We’ll listen to music, read the Bible, and dream ways to form faith that connects the Bible with the country.
