Worship, Beauty, Justice, and Shalom
In a recent essay on "Beauty & Justice," Nicholas Wolterstorff writes "what unites love of understanding, worship, beauty, and justice is that these are all dimensions of shalom.
In shalom, understanding has replaced bewilderment, worship of God has replaced enmity, aesthetic delight has replaced revulsion, justice has replaced injustice." This workshop explores the important relationship between liturgy, beauty, justice, and shalom and its influence on how we worship in our churches and worshiping communities, and engage in the cultural lives of our communities.
