The Changing Culture of Mainline Worship

With the encouragement and help of Robert Cornwall, four columns from my online journal have been edited into an essay with the title  “The Changing Culture of Mainline Worship.” (To read the essay, check Sharing the Practice.)

Bob edits Sharing the Practice, a journal, which is published quarterly by the Academy of Parish Clergy, and this article appears in the fall issue of the journal. Sharing the Practice contains a wide range of material, as the Table of Contents below indicates. It’s well worth checking out! (The current APC link brings up the summer issue and my essay appears in the fall issue. The link above accesses a pre-publication pdf of the entire fall 2011 issue. )
