Day 2
Today we had a whistle-stop overview of the history Christian worship. Some good questions about how there are "gaps" in our knowledge from the early years between the New Testament and the Church Fathers. How much did Christian worship flow from Judaism?


The second session was about "Preaching in a changing culture". Another good session, although I was hoping we'd get to explore more about whether or not preaching is valid at all rather than just how to do it in a changing world. Jonny's article (among others) is thought provoking on this.

John Stott reckons preaching is 'indispensable to Christianity'.
I think I agree.
Michael Green reckons the problem is not preaching but the low standard of it. He talks about a generation of preachers loosing confidence in the word of God and not being able to proclaim it without fear or favour.

But isn't the monologue sermon just another Christendom invention?
