Explore Worship with Your Congregation

How do you talk about worship with your congregation when it is difficult to get beyond individual reactions to the previous week's service? An extensive seminar hosted by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship at its 2014 Worship Symposium plumbs the experiences and lessons of two dramatically different churches — Christ Temple of Jackson, Mississippi, during the era of Jim Crow racism, and the Anaheim Vineyard Fellowship of the 1970s. The purpose of this exercise is to offer an example of how to discuss worship by looking at historic examples, rather than one's own congregation. The audio of this two-part, four-hour seminar is archived on the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship website, in two parts. The Institute also has a resource page listing videos that can help when teaching about worship practices, or in initiating study group discussions about the diverse worship practices within worldwide Christianity. Also see our feature articles, "Best Resources on Spiritual Practices," "Best Resources on Worship," and "Take Action: Understand and Improve Worship Dynamics."
