Worshiping Together--Crafting Creative Community Liturgies - Save the Date
People of faith from different traditions often gather together for common worship events. These can include joint Good Friday and Thanksgiving services, Martin Luther King Day and Holocaust Remembrance Day, as well as timely responses to crises and disasters like 9/11.
How can we create community worship services that draw from the deep wells of our diverse heritages? How can symbols, gesture, and movement combine to enrich our communal lives together and open both participants and the wider world to transformation? How do we best work together? What resources are available?
Join us for a day-long workshop in which we'll look at ecumenical and interfaith worship both theologically and practically, guided by the Rev. Dr. Christopher Duraisingh, a noted theologian on mission and the church as well as a charismatic teacher and creative liturgist.

Presenter: The Rev. Dr. Christopher Duraisingh
An eminent theologian and a priest in the Church of South India, the Rev. Dr. Duraisingh was the Charles Otis Professor of Practical Theology at Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. For many years he served the World Council of Churches in Geneva as the Director of the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism and the Executive Secretary for Gospel and Cultures. He is a major advocate for rethinking Christian faith and witness in dialogue with peoples of other faiths and cultures and in commitment to the "excluded." His current focus is the transformative reconstruction of the symbols of the Christian faith, including developing effective liturgies in a variety of contexts.
