   Coming Hope
   Isaiah 2:1-5
Sunday Morning Service,  December 29, 2013
 
You don’t have to turn on the news or visit a news web site very long to get very depressed. We live in a day of despair, threat of war, violence, murder, poverty, sickness, abortion, waning morality, injustice, and racial tensions. Even from the perspective of the unbelieving world, things look pretty bleak. Israel during the time of Isaiah’s prophecy resembled in many ways the condition in which we find ourselves today. But, there is still hope. There is a day coming that will bring hope to God’s rebellious and condemned people.

   Various Texts
Sunday School,  July 8, 2012
 
Contemporary discussions of worship are heavily influenced by debates over the relationship between Christianity and culture, yet such debates often miss an important component—a biblical definition of culture. This lesson seeks to fill this gap concerning the nature of, and Christian response to, culture. It asserts that the concept in the New Testament closest to the contemporary notion of culture is “behavior” and then proposes principles from these conclusions that apply to contextualization and worship in an ever-increasing global society.

   Christian Liturgy
   Various Texts
Sunday School,  July 18, 2010
The Bible commands that our worship be done "decently and in order." The order and structure of a worship service is its liturgy. Every church has a liturgy; the question is how thoughtful that liturgy is and what it communicates about what the church believes. A look at the development of the Church's liturgy through history will help us be deliberate in our "re-presentation" of the gospel in how we structure our worship.

When Christians discuss worship, especially if their conversation is heated, they usually focus on one primary element of worship above others—music. The church's songs are without question the most controversial aspect of Christian worship. However, some careful thinking about what Scripture has to say about our hymns, adequate understand of the purpose of power of Christian hymnody, and consideration of how the church's music has related to the culture around it throughout history will help us arrive at some conclusions about how we should go about choosing hymnody for our churches.
