Seminar at Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies
In his June 2018 seminar, "Enchanted Worship: Sacramental Ontology and Christian Liturgy," given at the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies, Dr. Boersma issued call for Christians to return to the worldview of the Church Fathers, leading us to a focus on the “always-and-everywhere” more than the “here-and-now.” In worship, we ascend to heaven to participate in the eternal worship of the triune God, while also encountering the descent of heavenly realities into our worship.
The seminar contributed to a theology of worship that is grounded in a participatory outlook on life that renews our worship and thereby re-enchants the world with God’s reconciling presence. The seminar included eight sessions, a sermon for the commencement, and a discussion on Dr. Boersma's book, Heavenly Participation.
