The arts are sometimes ignored when church planters share the Gospel. In Episode 13 of the AccessTruth Podcast, Dr Robin Harris shares about the importance of arts in understanding culture and worldview.
A daughter of missionaries, Robin later served in Alaska and then Siberia with her husband. Growing up, her passion was for both culture and music but she didn’t know how to bring the two together. After working with a minority group called the Sakha in Siberia, she discovered local expressions of worship in the church, what in now called ethnodoxology.
Dr Robin Harris is a professor at Dallas International University and, among other leadership roles, is President of the Ethnodoxology Network. She has authored several books, including Storytelling in Siberia.
