Foundations of Christian Worship and Spiritual Formation
Unit code: DP1036L
This unit covers three main areas of content:
- corporate Christian worship—exploring the biblical foundation of worship, its development, the understanding of worship from a Lutheran perspective, the Trinitarian and Christological nature of worship, worship as divine service, and the role of the means of grace and the liturgy.
- personal spiritual formation—exploring Christian spirituality both as a form of practice and as a field of theological inquiry. Luther’s catechetical framework, serving as a resource for meditation and prayer, provides the areas to be covered: the commandments, the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, baptism, holy communion, confession and absolution.
- the relationship between corporate worship and personal spirituality, including the church’s tradition of public prayer as a resource for personal spirituality.
