We are living in a time when worship has become a distinct priority for the Christian community. For years the church has emphasized evangelism, teaching, fellowship, missions, and service while neglecting the very source of its power--worship. Recently, however, many churches are experiencing a Spirit-led renewal in their understanding and practice of the praise and worship of God.
Encountering the Healing Power of God," a course for small-group or individual study, consists of thirteen east-to-understand sessions. Part One, " Sacred Actions Ordered by the Lord," offers two sessions on each of the "sacred actions" recognized as sacraments throughout the Christian church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. Part Two, "Sacred Actions Commonly Accepted by the Church," explores confirmation, reconciliation, marriage, ordination, anointing, and Christian funerary practices. Part Three, " Other Sacred Actions of Worship," studies foot washing and the "solemn assembly."
