Worship & Mission After Christendom with Alan & Eleanor Kreider
On November 3rd 2011, Eleanor and Alan Kreider expound upon the relationship of worship and mission. Alan Kreider, retired professor of Church History at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary, and his wife Eleanor, a musician, are both ordained Pastors and were missionaries in England for 30 years. The conference explored the facets of worship and mission through worship, lectures, and group discussions.
The conference emphasized the role of the Church in the post-Christendom era, a time of opposition to Christianity but also of opportunities for the Church. Eleanor explains that both worship and missions are "absolutley intertwinded". Alan notes that, in this context, gathering for worship is crucial as it gives clarity in a confusing world and calls Christians to be involved in God’s projects.
