Worship and Christian Community Development
2019 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Seminar
More and more congregations are embracing God’s call to seek the renewal and long-term health of their neighborhoods through commitments to sustainable holistic ministries not just for those near them, but with them. How does this vision shape those congregations’ public worship services? What difference does this make for preaching, public prayer, music, the arts, and celebrations of baptism and the Lord’s Supper? How do worship and community development work together—synergistically—as congregations seek to live out the call of the gospel of Jesus Christ? In this seminar, panelists lead a discussion that address these questions.
