Public Worship: Leadership in Word and Sacrament, Prayer and Thanksgiving
June 13-17, 2016 Worship
This course is now open to a limited number of Lifelong Learning participants.
With the aim of preparing evangelical leaders of public worship, this course engages the student in the experience of worship as an encounter between God’s Word and community.
It combines the practice of communal worship with biblical, theological, historical, and interfaith reflection. The course focuses on embodied skills of liturgical planning and presiding through a creative, Gospel-rooted approach to rituals, sermons, art, music, and hymnody (local and global, as well as ecumenical, traditional, and contemporary) of Christian worship practice. Through these practices, students give witness to Jesus Christ in God’s mission of reconciliation, justice, and peace for all creation.
