  • Worldviews in Film and Literature\nLeveraging the Power of Story\n\nA story well told can point beyond itself to the greatest story ever told. Stories in film and literature can move past the gatekeepers of non-theistic skepticism and speak directly to the heart and the will. Story can activate our moral imaginations, address essential human desires, and re-enchant the ordinary world.  This workshop will present methods of moving from beauty to goodness to truth in film and literature.\n
