    children’s song is placed in a prominent place in the service apparently by the pastor. It appears this may have been a theme for multiple Sundays so that it’s appearance here would not have been a surprise to the worshippers. But even this innocuous tune has a little pizzazz added to it by the worship leader. This is where we might turn to Paul Hiebert (Rathe, Music and Meaning) with his idea of critical contextualization. The idea that the pastor and/or worship leader can be the guides for the community of worship “who know better than anybody what music means to them” in regards to the music used in worship. I suspect that the musical selections were made very carefully for this Easter service, first, because of the solemnity of this Christian event. Secondly, I would characterize these choices as apposite because of the apparent skills and education of the worship leader. Preaching: I felt that the preaching was very well done. A beautiful message clearly stated. His delivery is good and drew the congregation into his message. His monologue as the centurion is an idea that is significant in its effectiveness and dramatic effect. I tried it once as the thief and received solid reviews. I turned to Rienstra from our readings to evaluate more fully Rev. Kletzing’s sermon in terms of the dimensions of language used. I was frustrated as I tried to identify each of the dimensions and catalog his sermon as fitting one or another. It would be counterproductive to…

  • Personal Narrative: Catholic Monks

    On March 18, 2012, an unlikely group of men gathered at 3:30 am in the Mormon town of Huntsville, Utah.

    Lewis offers an insight into the Christian world that I, and many other teenagers and even adults, probably have never even thought about or considered.

But, as I continued to read I realized that if he were not to write like that I still would be as confused about my faith as I was…

As Christians, I think we have a greater responsibility because we know how the world should look, and we need to step up and lead the people around us. In order to share the gospel with others, we have to take a look at what God is calling us to do. Leading others consists of knowing what the Christian life looks like, sharing that with others, and staying faithful and truthful in what we say…
