In January of 2015, Dr. McFee and Dr. Elnes led a retreat for the BTS Center in Maine based on the manuscript for Eric’s upcoming book, Gifts of the Dark Wood: Seven Blessings for Soul Skeptics (and other Wanderers).
This retreat was so compelling that the seed was planted to create a worship series based on the book. Marcia’s frequent music collaborator, Chuck Bell, provided musical support for that retreat and was on board to work with Marcia to help create original music and arrangements for familiar hymns for the series as well.
The on-demand webinar below demonstrates all of Dr. McFee’s well-known principles of meaningful and memorable worship:
• Intentional Spiritual Journeys
• Congregational Participation
• Sensory-Rich Communication
• Deeply Spiritual Leadership
• Attention to Dynamics and Flow
Utilizing this webinar will not only help you plan for Lent instantly, it can help train your team as you practice the concepts of meaningful and memorable sensory-rich worship.
