Crafting Liturgy - Shelli Latham - AM 4 day
Interested in building your toolbox for writing worship that engages your congregation from call to worship to benediction? This workshop will help the newbie liturgy writer develop tools for engaging the congregation in the work of the people. Those wishing to strengthen their creative liturgy-writing muscles will have the opportunity to experiment weaving words that engage the whole worshipper, through the interplay of scripture, arts, movement, music and more. Bring your upcoming worship plan, and leave with liturgy for your worship context.
Shelli was called to Druid Hills Presbyterian Church in September of 2014. Shei has a great passion for worship, seeking to make it multi-sensory and engaging of the whole person. She is also passionate about serving God’s most vulnerable children and has a particular call to advocacy. Shelli’s first call was to Youth Ministry; she comes to DHPC having recently completed her stint as Keynote Speaker for the Montreat Youth Conference, a role she also filled in 2010 and 2012. She has a great love for engaging teens and children in the church, and has a soft-spot for intergenerational ministry.
When not in the church building, Shelli spends a lot of time pounding the pavement in her running shoes, hammering something or other in her work-in-progress home, watching old episodes of West Wing, and planning adventures.
