This course explores worship in an overview that highlights but is not limited to the “Sunday morning worship service”. It considers the theological, biblical and historical underpinnings of Christian worship, the significance of the integration of “intensive” and “extensive” worship, individual and corporate worship, the sacraments and current worship issues and trends. The format of the course further seeks to “open the arts” in the art of worship in appreciation and celebration of our Creator-God.
In this course, participants will first, critically examine and reflect on their worship perceptions and practices as worshippers “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23). Second, participants will discuss and articulate a theology of worship based on personal experiences, insights, course content and continued responses to the God who invites worship.
