A surviving mosaic of an ancient Roman catacomb portrays worshipers standing with arms outstretched, palms upturned in an ancient posture of prayer.  We ask today: does it make a difference if we raise our arms or bow our heads for prayer? Does it make a difference if we sit or stand or kneel for worship?  Or if worship is stational, requiring choreography and movement? How do our postures, gestures and movements participate in meaning-making for worship? Through reflection, presentation, discussion and practice we explore different bodily approaches to worship so that we can be intentional about our embodied leadership and participation.
