Lessons in community from the Asian Christian church

Because Asians tend to value family and community more than the individual, Asian Christian worship has a more communal emphasis than does typical American worship. Congregations may corporately memorize a passage of Scripture each week as a part of worship, or foster a sense that how the individual behaves in the world reflects on the community as a whole, and therefore piety matters in a more inclusive way. In an interview conducted by Joan Huyser-Honig for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, a program dedicated to worship renewal, Singapore native Swee Hong Lim, Baylor University instructor of church music, discusses the differences between Eastern and Western Christianity and ways the West could adopt Eastern Christian traditions.
