Congregational Worship and the Challenges of a Post-Christrndom Society

In this MTS independent study, i will explore the challenges of a post-Christrndom society, as exacerbated by the global pandemic, posed to the church particularly in its congregational worship. Reviewing and discussing the work of authors such as James K.A. Smith, N.T. Wright, and Robert Webber, who have called in various ways for the church to respond in its corporate worship to the mission of God in addressing the needs of the world, i will examine the critical role of an effective worship life grounded in the gospel and engaged with the world for sustainability of the church.
