Description

This session offers glimpses into practices of worship, particularly musical practices and the theologies and ecclesiologies imbricated with them, that arise from Christian heartlands outside the Euro-American axis. Speaking from a postcolonial and decolonialist perspective, the presenter counters the normativity of Euro-American worship practices in the history of Christianity. He offers a list of considerations gleaned from extensive experience and ethnographic research in the Global South that establish a constellation of worship and musical practices that escape and resist these Euro-American normativities. The presenter offers practical advice for planning and leading worship that takes into account the fraught entanglements that characterize the history of Christianity in the West.
