How Can Liturgy Inform Our Faith?
Almost four in 10 practicing Christians (38 percent) say they’ve never heard of or are not too familiar with the concept of Christian liturgy, and that statistic is even higher among evangelicals, according to 2017 research from Barna Group. However, for centuries Christians have grounded their faith with this practice. Douglas McKelvey, author of Every Moment Holy, and Justin Whitmel Earley, creator of the Common Rule, will lead us in a conversation about the impact of daily liturgical rhythms.
In our divided and isolated cultural moment, it can feel easy for us to become skeptical, jaded and distrustful of others. But Malcolm Gladwell argues that perhaps we’re wired for just the opposite; perhaps we’re wired to enter into deep relationship, trusting one another. Sharing research and stories from his newest book, Malcolm helps us understand why this is so essential and how we can improve in how we relate to others.
