    Well spoken, Brother!

    Improvisation by Samuel Wells relates to this same topic applied to Christian Ethics.
    One of the ideas of which Wells reminds us is that improv has rules – it is practiced in community (acting troupe.)

    My favorite way of explaining Christian community (particularly in the Church of the Brethren context): we are practicing improvisation in ensemble. Love Feast as practiced by the Church of the Brethren is a a unique, identity-bearing, participatory drama that guides the understanding of Christ-centered service.

    Nice opening conversation!

    Tara.
