Ancient Future Worship: The Legacy of Robert E. Webber

Christians often freeze-frame an epoch and make it the standard by which all faith expressions across time and space are judged. By contrast, Robert E. Webber invited, challenged and cajoled Christians to affirm the whole church in all of its manifestations to see the range of ways Christians worship as a historical and contextual encounter and conversation with Christ that can inform and strengthen our own understanding. For example, he saw a parallel between postmodern Christian practice and the practices of the early, classical period of Christianity. Now, as then, he wrote, Christian success comes “not by watering down the faith, but by being a countercultural community that invites people to be shaped by the story of Israel and Jesus.” To learn more about Robert Webber and his notion of seeing the relevance of the church's past to its future, read the essay written by Joan Huyser-Honig for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an initiative dedicated to Christian worship renewal.
