Worship that is culturally appropriate has the power to break down unnecessary barriers as people respond to the revelation of God. They are better able to understand the message and then, in turn, share with those outside of the church setting who may be unfamiliar with church lingo.
"Ethnodoxologists study how peoples around the world worship God and encourage them to create in response to God’s work in their lives” (Robin Harris, ethnodoxologist). As a team, participants will lead attendees in a songwriting workshop using key principles of ethnodoxology as a guide. Subsequently, the team will record these songs to make ready for distribution. In the day, you will work with younger musicians. In the evening, you will work with older musicians who used to write songs but no longer do.
