Guests: Fr. Chris Metropulos, Chuck Powell, and Terry Mattingly
Come eavesdrop on a frank conversation between Fr. Chris, Terry Mattingly, and Chuck Powell as they discuss modern trends in American Christian worship services and how they talk about the difference between the contemporary and the timeless.
They talk about the role of preaching in worship, and the place of beauty and story in Christian worship.
