Monthly History Lecture: What are we doing when we worship?

posted 5 Sep 2018, 19:16 by Gary van der Meer   [ updated 27 Jun 2019, 10:02 ]

Our final session in this series on the history of Christian worship is about what we mean by 'worship'.

Is worship about concentrating or focusing? Is it about active participation or are we in some kind of zone of contemplation? Perhaps the Christmas carol, "O, Come, All Ye Faithful" describes what we are doing in the phrase, "O come, let us adore him..."  Over the past 20 centuries of Christian liturgy, what we mean by worship has changed. How we enter into the worship service and what we do when we leave both help us form community.

Join us to learn more!
