Abstract
This study investigates a growing trend among ELCA and other liturgical churches. The trend involves a move away from traditional liturgical worship to a contemporary style. I sought to enhance my understandings of both this new approach and of the essential elements of Christian worship. A conference on "Worship as Evangelism" at Prince of Peace Lutheran in Burnsville, Minnesota, and extensive readings from both sides of the issue were the basis of the project. I then analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and came to a decision regarding limits in cultural adaptation in worship.
