We plan not just a thematic service of worship, but a series of linked worship services. Based on lectionary Scripture texts, lasting anywhere from two to ten weeks, our worship series allow for a more expansive exploration of a story or a theme and fit one of our primary understandings of worship as an ongoing conversation.
We find ourselves in worship, beginning our Eastertide worship series:
dawn for the dead: world war x.
Based on a book by Brian K. Blount, President and Professor of New Testament at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA, called Invasion of the Dead: Preaching Resurrection, in which Brian suggests that the entire New Testament is best understood as thoroughly informed by apocalyptic thought. He claims not only that the church has lost that emphasis and interpretive key, but that it is a deeply enough relevant truth, that culture has claimed it in its fascination with the undead.
