CSCA Lectures 2016
Subversive Liturgy: Christian Worship and Its Implications for Social Ethics and Ecology
July 19 to 21, 7:45 pm @ TTC Multi-purpose Hall
Trinity Theological College
490 Upper Bukit Timah Rd
From a theological perspective, the liturgy is not one of many possible forms of worship, but is the very embodiment and expression of the Church's faith. Far from being a ritualistic activity, it has radical and far-reaching social-political and ecological implications. These lectures will show how the church’s engagement with these societal issues develops out of the liturgy, and why the modern church needs to practice a theologically sound liturgy.
19 July The Liturgy as Enactment of the Faith of the Church
