Worship Renewal Among The Contemporary Churches

This section explores worship renewal in the major denominations and Christian fellowships in North America. While there is a considerable amount of diversity from one denomination to the next, these entries reveal a surprising consensus on worship that is emerging in many Western churches. First, there is a remarkable agreement among churches on the need for renewal. Even the most liturgically conservative denominations see the need for reviving worship in a contemporary cultural context. Second, in many cases, churches that study their roots-either denominational or early Christian or both-often rediscover traditions that bring fullness and integrity to worship. Ancient liturgical forms are being adapted and used in very different settings. Third, the praise-and-worship movement is supplying material for renewal in just as many churches. Some are even finding that denominational traditions and more contemporary forms of worship are not necessarily incompatible.
