Our Life in Worship / Our Life in the World
with Marty Haugen
SCRIPTURE SCHOLAR Walter Brueggemann says that in worship, Christians participate with God in “world-making” – imagining God’s radical alternative vision and proclaiming it to a culture of violence, oppression and greed.
Our stories, songs, prayers and actions within worship shape our beliefs, our relationships, and our actions in the world.
How does our worship help or hinder us as a pilgrim community of believers seeking to be living witnesses of the Gospel to a culture often at odds with the teachings and vision of Jesus and his Reign?
