Preview of Worship on the Way: An ISAAC NorCal RESEARCH SEMINAR from James Chuck
I hope you all had a good summer. The fall meeting of the Research Seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the Berkeley Chinese Community Church, 2117 Acton S., Berkeley. I hope this date works for everyone. Please let me know by return email whether or not you plan to be present.
Russell Yee will be the presenter for the day, giving us a preview of his forthcoming book. Responses to the presentation and discussion will follow. As is our custom, we will go out to lunch for a time of informal fellowship following our session together.
Below is a summary of his presentation:
A Preview of Worship on the Way: Exploring the need for Asian North American Worship (Judson Press, Forthcoming)
Russell Yee, Ph.D.
In 1996, the landmark book, People on the Way: Asian North Americans Discovering Christ, Culture, and Community appeared. Since then, there has been no lack of new and renewed Asian North American churches, ministries, books, and leadership. But Sunday worship in our churches mostly remains a subset of majority-culture traditions and trends. Come explore the need for contextualized worship in our churches and both the opportunities and impediments to its development.
Looking forward to see you on October 27th.
Facilitator for the ISAAC Research Seminar
