Worship in the Borderlands: Welcoming the Stranger in Liturgy and Song

In the face of rising nationalism, fear of the "other," and race hatred, how does worship speak to the spiritual values that shape meaning in this time? As leaders, demonstrating the central tenet of hospitality in the music we sing, the prayers we pray, and the sermons we preach, we reflect and remember the Judeo-Christian heritage that guides and transforms our understanding of "welcoming the stranger," reminding us that we are all strangers in a strange land.

Registration is closed.

This event has passed, but we look forward to seeing you next time!
