SPECIAL ISSUES IN WORSHIP & THEOLOGY
This course is taken as a 5-day intensive retreat, in the Winter. It examines extensively the Convergence Worship Movement, (Evangelical, Charismatic/Pentecostal & liturgical/Sacramental). Students will also explore how the successful amalgamation of the three streams in regard to sign and symbol, scripture and spirit within renewal movements both past and present, have identified a convergent Christian practice as an answer to the question, “by what is the Christian church constituted?” Key historical, theological and philosophical dimensions of each movement will be examined uncovering key events, characters and teachings vital to each of the streams.
This year's retreat will be held from January 6, 2020 through January 10, 2020.
