A week-long immersion to explore the design, experience and leadership of multigenerational worship and ritual. Readings and activities will emphasize the role of liturgist as leader of faith formation in religious community. Texts, field trips, video and story will be drawn from the work of artists, performers, clergy and thinkers who guide our study and creation of transformational ritual and liturgical forms. There will be dancing, there will be poems, there will be food, there will be song, there will be art-making and picture taking. Course details will be sent in advance and will include reading, worship preparation and one writing assignment. Final project will be due in February. Please note that there will be evening sessions and local field trips built into the class schedule.
