How do we worship as a church in the age of social distancing?

The shift from the in-person experience of worship to online worship involves rethinking what Biblical presence means. It is also an opportunity for our worship to be far more public than it has been in the past.

This session covers how to lead online worship without losing your soul. Speaking on the topic of the church’s creative and vulnerable witness to God's grace, Rev. Dr. Taylor offers encouragement for church leaders to accept this crisis as an invitation to be creative—as a gift, not a burden.
