Worship Symposium Pix

The Calvin Worship Symposium was another marvelous experience – though to tell the truth, I didn’t think the preaching was of as consistently high quality as in years past. But several highlights, including hearing Marva Dawn preach and teach, and hearing again Keith and Kristen Getty (the dark haired one in the pic) more than made up for that. In particular I was intrigued by the Scripture reading presentations. It wasn’t a skit – an ensemble basically “acted out” the Scripture. What impressed me was that it was so simple, unencumbered and elegant; and that the only words spoken were Scripture.

You can get a little feel for this year’s Symposium by going here to the Worship Institute’s page and checking out the pictures.

You can learn more of what the Gettys are about as musicians, and hear some of their more popular songs, by going to their website here.
