Expanding Our Theology of Worship: Moving Beyond Singing to Service
Week after week, the faithful file in and out of the pews to attend worship services. An hour or even two hours later, they leave the sanctuary of the Sanctuary to re-enter the “real world” for another worship-less week until Sunday rolls around again. This article suggests we miss the mark when we see our life outside church as devoid of opportunities to worship God. Alfred Edersheim said it succinctly: “To the secular person there is nothing spiritual; to the spiritual person there is nothing secular.” This article leads us into exploring the need for and the shape of an expanding understanding of worship.

Ed Cook followed a twenty-year technological career in designing computer business systems with a twenty-five year people career in Christian Ministry as a Church Planter, Pastor, and Theological Educator. His doctoral research and dissertation were on the holistic development of pastors and church planters in the emerging generations. He is now coaching, consulting, teaching, and writing as the principal of Care-Full Coaching. www.cfcoaching.org.

Ed’s academic focus is practical and pastoral theology. Practical theology is simply the way a person looks at the meaning of life and his or her place and purpose in the grand scheme of things. Pastoral theology is simply a person’s approach to caring about and for others. Based on these definitions, everyone has both a practical and pastoral theology. Ed’s passion is to interact with others to help them develop as purposeful participants in all aspects of life as well as becoming people who care for others. He blogs at www.justathought-e.com.
