Methodist Worship

American Methodist Worship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Methodist Worship by R. Matthew Sigler Book Summary:

What makes Methodist worship "Methodist" or "Wesleyan?" How do Methodists evaluate emerging forms of worship in light of their own liturgical heritage? This book considers these questions by bringing to light the work and significance of three Methodist liturgists who have until now received precious little scholarly focus: Thomas O. Summers (1812-1882), Nolan B. Harmon (1892-1993), and James F. White (1932-2004). Exploring each one’s contribution to the Methodist movement, it evaluates their continuing legacies as scholars and practitioners of Methodist worship. Importantly, the work of all these men occurred during times of cultural change, which gave rise to new ways of worship within the landscape of American Methodism. Addressing them in chronological order, this study shows how each figure enacted liturgical reform and renewal by drawing from the liturgical textual tradition inherited directly from John Wesley’s Sunday Service of the Methodist in North America as well as the hymnody of Charles Wesley. It also demonstrates how they sought to inculturate the Wesleyan liturgical tradition in the midst of these significant changes. Evaluating historic and emerging trends in Methodist liturgical praxis, this is a book that will be of great interest to scholars of Methodism, the History of Religion, Liturgical Studies and Theology.

John Wesley and Marriage

American Methodist Worship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

John Wesley and Marriage by Bufford W. Coe Book Summary:

"In this book, a Methodist minister examines the sources of John Wesley's ideas about marriage and shows how those beliefs found expression in the cleric's revision of the Anglican wedding service." "Author Bufford W. Coe describes the radical differences between a typical eighteenth-century wedding and a church wedding of today. He also tells the fascinating story of Wesley's romances with Sophia Hopkey and Grace Murray, based on his own private diaries, and shows how those relationships, as well as his miserably unhappy marriage, were affected by Wesley's beliefs about matrimony." "Four days after Wesley decided he would marry at the age of forty-seven, he spoke to a group of unmarried men and encouraged them to remain single. In the matrimonial service he devised for American Methodists, Wesley eliminated the custom of the bride being given in marriage by her father, although Wesley consistently taught that Christians should not marry without the consent of their parents. Wesley strongly condemned the Roman Catholic Church for requiring celibacy of its priests, but his own rules required that Methodist preachers who married during their initial probationary period were thereby disqualified." "In 1784, Wesley published The Sunday Service of the Methodists in North America with Other Occasional Services. Coe studies the components of Wesley's marriage liturgy from the Sunday Service to try to determine why Wesley revised the Anglican wedding service in the way that he did."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Develops the claim that sacramental and liturgical practices are central means by which a Church shapes the faith, character and consciousness of its members.

A Little Heaven Below

American Methodist Worship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Little Heaven Below by Lester Ruth Book Summary:

For early American Methodists, quarterly meetings were great festivals at the heart of Methodism's liturgical life. The meetings lasted several days and could attract thousands. In this volume, Lester Ruth offers a revisionist description of worship at the quarterly meetings in early American Methodism (ca. 1772-1825). The author describes the quarterly meeting as the setting in which early Methodism most "dramatized" itself for public view as graced fellowship. He explores each of the liturgical dynamics of this experience, including the distinction between public and private worship, the loud exuberance of American Methodists, the vivid proclamation of God's Word, the role of the sacraments and of Wesley's liturgical innovations, the power of fellowship as eschatological manifestation, and the interaction between the personal experience of grace and ecclesial inclusion. Unique in its analysis of the quarterly meetings as a key to understanding Early Methodism's liturgical life, this book redefines methodology for doing early Methodist liturgical historiography. It makes ample use of primary materials, including much unpublished archival material: hymns, letters, dairies, prayers, sermons, homiletical manuals, etc. The book offers a fuller, more accurate portrayal of the life of early American Methodists. It will enable readers to understand how Methodist polity shaped worship rhythms and practices and how Methodist piety affected worship and its interpretation. Readers will gain increased understanding of how ecclesial context affects personal experiences of God's grace.

From the Margins

American Methodist Worship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

From the Margins by Christian T. Collins Winn Book Summary:

Recognized as a leading interpreter of major movements in American Christianity such as Evangelicalism, Pentecostalism, and the Holiness movement, Donald W. Dayton has produced a body of work spanning four decades and diverse areas of inquiry. In From the Margins, friends and colleagues respond to major essays by Dayton (several published here for the first time) so as to celebrate and reflect on this diverse and rich body of work. The essays highlight the breadth of Dayton's contribution while also revealing a methodological core. The latter could be described as Dayton's deconstructive reading of standard scholarly narratives in order to short-circuit their domesticating effects on the more radical aspects of American Christianity. Dayton's work has challenged long-held assumptions about the conservative nature of American Christianity by showing that both in their history and in their deeper theological substructures, traditions such as Evangelicalism and Pentecostalism are far more radical and productive of social change than was previously imagined.

He Restores Our Soul

American Methodist Worship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

He Restores Our Soul by Stafford Miller Book Summary:

The path of the gospel and the path of justice cannot be separated, As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, his faith community must somehow join them together in our pilgrimage.By putting justice into practice on behalf of those who need it, the gospel is strengthens.. In this way divine justice, Christians can then actively take part by demonstrating the loving acts of God.It is my hope that you will be inspired to assume a Biblical balance of what justice is, how we have acquired a posture of un-justice finally how divine justice can be achieved.Many persons suppose that Jesus's role on earth was to give us inner joy and peace and to prepare us for eternal life. Were as I do agree, I also affirm that eternal life begins now. Jesus also lifts up a theological balance of faith and justice. And my book entitled He Restores our Soul shows how this balance of faith and divine justice can be achieved.

The Changing Face of Jewish and Christian Worship in North America

American Methodist Worship [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Changing Face of Jewish and Christian Worship in North America by Paul F. Bradshaw,Lawrence A. Hoffman Book Summary:

Volume 1 of Two Liturgical Traditions, surveyed the origins and growth of Christian and Jewish liturgy from the first century of the common era until our time. This second volume The Changing Face of Jewish and Christian Worship in North America, follows up with an examination of the recent revolution in Jewish and Christian liturgies. The book reflects the particular role of North America in the worldwide experiment in liturgical renewal. The introductory essay asks what a liturgical tradition is. Part 1 (Liturgical Traditions and Theologies of "The Other") is a self-conscious reflection on how Jewish and Christian attitudes toward each other have been expressed in the forms of each tradition's worship. All six of the authors in Part 2 (American Reform or Second Reformation?) have been intimately involved with current liturgical editing and write first-hand accounts of what they think they and their colleagues have accomplished in the new Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish liturgical books. Part 3 (Critiquing Liturgical Reforms) addresses the questions of theology, feminist theory, and poetics against which the liturgical works themselves must be judged. The conclusion of this volume considers where our traditions are heading. A reconsideration of liturgical traditions in general against the backdrop of case studies and critiques, this book re-evaluates the challenges posed to Jews and Christians alike as they aspire to reshape, yet retain, the liturgical traditions they have inherited.
