The Christian year enables the church to mark time in a profound way. In this course, students will study the theological themes and dominant metaphors inherent in the days and seasons of the liturgical year. Building on these insights, they will then explore the liturgical and homiletical possibilities therein. Participants will study liturgies and sermons as well as engage in creating their own. Attention will be given to the use of language and the role of music and other lively arts. Prerequisites: P540 Worship Intro and P530 Preaching Intro.
