Worship in Crisis will bring together laypersons, pastors, students and theologians to discuss the crises that confront the practice of Christian worship in our time, from economic collapse to ecological endangerment. What might moments of crisis require of faith communities?

Through hands-on breakout sessions, participants themselves will explore creative ways in which timely worship can speak to the crises of today.
