In the midst of competing cultural claims on our identity, Christians continue to profess identity in the triune God. We understand our worth and purpose as individuals and in community through this identity. The patterns and rhythms of Sunday worship and the church’s year form us in this identity; they give us an abundance of riches for faith formation in community. This event explores ways that the patterns of worship throughout the church’s year provide purpose and growth even in times of change.  This event will help you:

  1. Explore secular and religious ways of marking time
  2. Analyze the power of repetition in human life
  3. Understand how the themes of the church year relate to our life questions and experiences
  4. Interpret the relationship between rational and aesthetic liturgical practices
  5. Utilize a variety of practical strategies, ideas, and resources to make connections between worship throughout the church’s year and lifelong formation in the life of God.

Who should attend:

Christian Educators, Clergy, Local Church Pastors, Certified Ruling Elders, Licensed Local Pastors, Worship leaders
