Brian and Rebecca talk about how the practice of discomfort in worship can prepare us for the invitation of following Jesus into the world.  What do we do to prepare for the disruption that comes when choosing the Way of Jesus?  How can the Moravian Motto, "In Essentials, Unity; In Non-Essentials, Liberty; In All Things Love," give us a framework for faithful disruption?
Rebecca and Brian talk with Jill Peters who runs the Crossroads Lay Leadership Program at Moravian Theological Seminary.  She tells us about the worship class and give lots of wonderful examples of how worship can be re-imagined to help make deeper connections with God.  We hope that some of you might check out the Crossroads Program for your own spiritual formation and growth.  It is a wonderful resource!
Brian and Rebecca talk about one of the basic building blocks of Christian worship, the Bible.  The story of God and of God's relationship with human beings and creation is where many worship leaders start to create worship experience.  Why is that?  Hear us think aloud about the importance of the stories we tell and how they impact the stories of our own lives.
