Worship Matters: Episode 01 - Epiphany
By Cynthia Wilson
“Worship Matters” is a podcast from the worship team of Discipleship Ministries, designed to deal with the intricacies of planning worship each week. Hosted by Dr. Cynthia Wilson, Executive Director of Worship Ministries and the Director of Liturgical Ministries; Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Director of Music Ministries; and Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, this podcast explores how to plan worship using the common lectionary while creating worship experiences and series that are engaging, relevant, and adaptable for any church setting.
Episode 01: Epiphany – The team shares about the history and interpretation of the high holy day called Epiphany, and why it might be worth taking some time just after all the excitement of Christmas to refocus and center on the light that is Jesus the Christ. We discuss why the season following Epiphany is called Ordinary Time and how the liturgical year has an overall flow where the seasons and special days are distinct but overlap and fold into one another.
