With arms wide open to a new millennium: preaching and worship in the digital age
Author
James S Burns
Abstract
This thesis explores how preaching and worship can adapt to the effects of electronic communication in how people receive and process information, which is especially observable in the millennial generation. It is recommended that preachers make five strategic shifts: from performance to participation, from authoritarian to authentic, from isolated to integrated, from verbal to visual, and from stabilization to subversion. A model emerges where worship design pays equal attention to word, music, and image.
