CM220 : Worship, Liturgy and Community (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : 2022
About this course

This course explores the dynamic relationship of liturgy and community-living in Christian worship. The approach is interdisciplinary, i.e. scriptural, theological, historical, and contemporary resources will be used to consider the subjects of liturgical worship, rituals, and their glocal impact. Students will be equipped to make critical and constructive reflections about the liturgies in their respective church backgrounds, foster a deeper appreciation of diversity in Christian worship, so as to sensitively develop practices that may enrich community life and cross-cultural missions for the glory of God.
