Abstract

The invigorating capacity of diverse modes of expression on common values. The Hobart community event Carols Together has, from its inception, echoed the ethos of the community from which it grew. Hobart Central church has a small but ethnically diverse congregation that has come about by virtue of the vision of its leadership but also the history of its most recent incarnation as a Korean based church that opened up an English service. This service has attracted a diverse range of people who see the cultural mix as an opportunity for ministry, growth and exchange. The Carols Together event which is sponsored, managed and directed by congregational leaders and members of the church has reflected this diversity and the invigorating capacity of diverse modes of expression on common values. Each year, artistic expressions of the Christmas narrative are shared from Korean, Eurasian, European, Indian, African and other cultural and historical perspectives. The director’s role in planning this event is to solicit artistic contributions and ensure that each one is given context and cohesion but also room to intersect and expand its own relevance and impact on values shared by the larger community.
