Liturgy with a difference : beyond inclusion in the Christian assembly by Stephen Burns( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gathers a broad range of international theologians and scholars to interrogate current practices of liturgy and worship in order to unmask ways in which dehumanizing majoritarianisms and presumed norms of gender, culture, ethnicity, and body, among others, remain at work in congregations. Together, the chapters in this collection call for a liturgical practice that recognizes and rehearses the vivid richness of God's image found in the human community and glimpsed, if only for a moment, in liturgical celebration. They point the way beyond mere inclusion toward a generous embrace of the many differences that make up the Christian community"--

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it mean to be engaged in Christian ministry in a shifting spiritual and religious landscape? Stephen Burns invites readers to think anew about the distinctiveness of public practices of pastoral presence. Rather than narrowly defining pastoral care and pastoral theology (pastoral counseling, preaching, youth groups, visits to elders, etc.) and theological academic categories (history, pastoral theology, liturgy, ethics and contemporary sociology), he argues for a new imagination and practice of pastoral presence -- a presence that is representative, public, integrated, and expansive

Living the thanksgiving : exploring the Eucharist by Stephen Burns( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living the Thanksgiving takes us on an exploration of the riches of eucharistic theology by way of its biblical origins and its development through the Christian centuries. Yet perhaps more importantly, it looks to contemporary celebration to find new insights and challenges. As church attendance declines for example, it asks whether our thinking about the eucharist needs to be connected to a sense of mission? And can eucharistic spirituality shape how we live each day, not simply how we worship on Sundays?
