Course Memo

Utilizing both classroom and practicum work, this two-semester course will immerse students in the exploration of histories, theologies, and contexts of Lutheran worship in local and global expressions; preparation of worship for weekly seminary chapel services; development of working theologies of baptism, communion, and worship; engagement with ritual care practices and services for life passages; and embodiment of postures, gestures, rubrics, and contents in order to find and develop their own worship leadership style.  Evaluation will be based on participation, worship preparation, and written assignments.
