THEO 3403: History and Theology of Christian Worship
Prerequisite: UFDN 3100. Worship both reflects and shapes the ways in which Christian convictions are understood, experienced, and embodied by the followers of Jesus in any given historical epoch or cultural context. This course examines representative liturgical practices and worship spaces from different periods, cultures, and branches of the Christian tradition. But it will not only ask how Christians in various times and places have actually worshipped God. It will also ask how Christians ought - and ought not - to worship. It will suggest theological tests for determining when worship has degenerated into emotionalism, formalism or superstition. Students will be expected to attend Sunday worship services at several different churches in the Seattle metro area. This course may, but need not, be taken in conjunction with THEO 4930 Practicum: Christian Worship (2).
