The Reverend Robert Schnase
Bishop of the Rio Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church
The Power of Narrative to Open Hearts and Change Conversations”
Robert Schnase was born, grew up, and served congregations along the US-Mexico border. His collection of stories, Border Crossing, provides the personal, intimate perspective of a pastor working in the intermingling, sometimes clashing, cultures of the border. After each story, Bishop Schnase will reflect on the power of narrative to create the liminal space for transformation and social change within communities, especially in contentious times.
