Educating imaginative, resilient leaders for God's changing world.

Save the Date: January 28-30, 2013 - JANUARY SEMINARS

by Lifelong Learning Staff

Mel Bringle, Paul Huh, Meg Flannagan and other members of the Presbyterian hymnal committee

What can worship committees do – with or without – musicians and pastoral staff to shape coherent, faithful worship, week after week, season after season? How can Christian Education for children of God of all ages complement Sunday worship? When the focus is on the liturgical season and the biblical texts, how can we engage the ongoing work of mission and fellowship in the midst of these seasons?

Join us for January seminars 2013 to explore these and other questions with scholars and practitioners in the field  Through the lens of the liturgical season of Eastertide, preachers, teachers, music directors, worship, education and liturgical arts committee members will focus  resources to invigorate and inspire their ministries throughout the year. Participants will write liturgy, craft the proclamation of the Word, create the order of service, and write hymns that will shape closing worship during extended workshop sessions.


Workshop leaders confirmed as of this date include Glory To God Presbyterian Hymnal committee members Mel Bringle and Paul Huh and marketing coordinator Meg Flannagan; Kimberly Bracken Long, editor and contributor to the new Feasting On The Word Worship Companion; Michael Morgan, author of the Psalter For Christian Worship and contributor to the new CRC Psalter, Psalms For All Seasons; and William P. Brown, editor of the upcoming Oxford Companion To The Psalms.


Additional speakers, the event schedule and registration fee options will be announced later this spring. There will be discounts for groups of two or more persons from the same congregation or council/judicatory attending as a team.
