This course offers students further preparation in leading worship within the Anglican/Episcopal Church, and is comprised of both opportunities for on-site practical instruction and independent reading. Topics covered include developing liturgies according to context, knowing the rubrics and flexibility within the Book of Common Prayer, and exploring models for worship in alternative worship texts such as Enriching Our Worship. In keeping with Union’s legacy of social justice, readings engage social disparities such as gender, race, class and sexuality with analytical rigor, historical consciousness, sensitivity to tradition, and compassion.

Note: Required for MDiv students with a concentration in Anglican Studies to fulfill the Practical Theology requirement.
