Description

In addition to supporting the voice in worship, are there other ways of thinking about the use of instruments in worship? In this session, we will explore Martin Luther's contributions toward a Christological and soteriological understanding of the use of instruments in church. We will do so in conversation with U.S. Hispanic reflections on the Christological understanding of beauty, which stress the link between discipleship and ethics. Some reflections on the role of instrumentalists in worship will follow, including the idea that instrumentalists have challenging roles to play as both theologians and interpreters of culture in today's society. A musical setting on a Hispanic hymn composed by the presenter for devotional purposes will be used to illustrate some of the concepts discussed in the sectional.
