Meant to give you "food for the journey" the content will have practical application back home, and the learning shared with faculty and friends will renew and refresh you. See upcoming session below.
  • Lecture series in September (Blandy Lectures), February (Payne Lecture), and March (Harvey Lectures) presented by distinguished scholars and leaders in the Church offer additional learning and renewal opportunities. 

June 2 - 6, 2014 Continuing Education Session

Renewing Renewal: How the work of the Liturgical Renewal Movement is not over and what we need to do about it

In this class we will explore the roots of liturgical renewal, discovering the real watershed that it represents. After unpacking some of the many ramifications of renewal on worship, discipleship and theology we will then evaluate how well the advocates of renewal went about their task and the current state of renewal in our own churches. We will conclude by imagining what the completion of liturgical renewal might mean in the parish, the Christian life and the church in the future.
Faculty: The Rev. Nathan G. Jennings, J. Milton Richardson Associate Professor of Liturgics and Anglican Studies
