The Anatomy of Worship

Carl Schalk, composer, hymnologist, Professor Emeritus, Concordia University

March 8, Rites and Ceremonies
Christian worship is not just for Sunday anymore! A look at a baker’s dozen of the Church’s rites and ceremonies which nurture and strengthen the faith, which help us remember who and whose we are as we travel the road between Holy Baptism and Christian burial.

March 15, The Church and Time
This class has been postponed.
How the Church celebrates time. A deep dive into the Church’s year. The three great cycles of the Church’s year, and the importance of the Lesser Festivals, saints days, and commemorations, with a discussion of conflicts between the Church’s year and the secular culture.

March 22, The Holy Communion
A whirlwind trip through the central act of the Christian community, the weekly celebration of Holy Communion. How did it get its shape? What are its parts? How do they fit together? What is its ultimate purpose?
