Worship Matters: Episode 41 - In-Person Worship, Part 4: Who Shall We Become?
By Cynthia Wilson
Rev. John Thornburg returns to the podcast as the Worship Team discusses his article “When We Return” after a year of two pandemics. Rev. Thornburg, of the Texas Methodist Foundation, says that now is the time to ask big questions about the nature of the church and how we go about Seeing All the People. In light of the pandemic of systemic racism, Rev. Thornburg invited the church to move from an understanding of “safe space” to a more prophetic “brave space” that acknowledges differences of opinion and belief and understanding and yet allows room to speak truth that leads to transformation. Join us for this thrilling and challenging conversation.
