With Richard Mouw
Evangelicals have typically not been very enthusiastic about creating special "sacred spaces." On occasion, we have offered a theological rationale for our resistance, although sometimes it has simply been out of desire not to be too "Catholic." But this has often led to a spiritual poverty in our worship as well as in our individual "quiet times." It is time to think new thoughts about seeking out spaces that invite us into special experiences of the divine presence.
This lecture is part of our Summer Lecture 2016 series.
