July Worship Series: Revolutions
July typically begins with much thought and discussion around our American Revolution. We will be taking the entire month to explore issues surrounding revolutions of all kinds! Our songs, our words, and our lessons will all revolve around the affects and effects of revolutions of thought, politics, and deed.
July 19th is a time of remembering the Reformation—the Protestant revolution against the bad church practices of their day. We’ll explore the issues of courage, clarity, cooperation, and conversation that would have been needed to face the enormous, wealthy institution that was the Church of the time.
On July 26th is a day of exploring the spiritual revolution we are experiencing now, entitled The Great Emergence by author and professor Phyllis Tickle. This is an entire re-thinking of what is church and “how” do we believe? Those same issues we explored on the 19th will come into play as, in our generation, we are revolutionizing the bad theology we see in the wider church today. This is where we are, will we (or the church) survive?
