Worship Matters: Episode 53 - Facing Grief and Loss: Worship as Pastoral Care

By Cynthia Wilson

All Saints Day is coming soon, and we are still faced with overwhelming loss from the pandemic, both in terms of lives lost and economic devastation. How can worship respond to this ache in the hearts of so many of our congregations and community? Listen in as the worship team discusses worship as pastoral care, covering themes such as lament and joy; and naming and altar building in special services and Sunday by Sunday.

“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.
