Worship Shaping Life Conference

April 12 & 13, 2010

The experiential and formative nexus of worship and life have garnered significant contemporary interest and insight from the fields of theology, ethics, liturgy, and ritual studies.

Though a widely recognized social and theological fact, the impact of highly formative worship experiences, whether singular or spanning a lifetime, continues to elicit ever-greater study in order to understand the way in which it shapes the perspectives, decisions, and actions of those who involve their lives in worship.

This conference seeks to explore and better understand such critical and contemporary dynamics as the Church faces a new millennium of shaping the worship that shapes discipleship.
