Following the completion of the course, a student will be able to:
- Give an overview of the history of Christian worship.
- Articulate and defend viable definitions of both worship and art.
- Articulate sound theological underpinnings of embodied expressions of worship and their relation to the mission of the Kingdom of God.
- Understand more about her- or himself regarding ways she or he might creatively engage the surrounding world as acts of worship.
- Apply this learning in the context of daily life and congregational life, and the life of the church in the broader community.
This course is designed to be an integrative consideration of the relationship between Christian worship and (the) art(s). Students will focus on the questions of what, how, and why regarding worship and art. Imago Dei, incarnation, and mission will be emphasized as theological underpinnings of the dynamics between worship and art. The course will be broken roughly into two halves. The first half will be a survey of the history of Christian worship. The second half will consider the Christian life of worship through the lens of art as improvisation.
