Nashville, TN – One of the best kept secrets in Nashville is this Sunday, November 20th, at the Ryman Auditorium. “Tokens, The Welcome Table” returns to the historic Ryman with an all star line-up of music, comedy, performance and theology.
Tokens is part great music, part theology lecture, part cultural analysis, and part good conversation. The name Tokens is from activist and writer and lay-theologian William Stringfellow “Discerning signs has to do with comprehending the remarkable in common happenings, with perceiving the saga of salvation within the era of the Fall. It has to do with the ability to interpret ordinary events in both apocalyptic and eschatological connotations, to see portents of death where others find progress or success but, simultaneously, to behold tokens of the reality of the Resurrection or hope where others are consigned to confusion or despair.”
