God's Worshiping People: Then and Now

2018 Cooley Lecture Series

December 4, 2017

Mark your calendars for the Robert C. Cooley Center Annual Lecture Series: January 18-19, 2018, "God's Worshiping People: Then and Now", with speaker Dr. Daniel Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Wheaton College.

On Thursday, January 18 at 7:00 PM, Dr. Block will examine the role of the Scriptures in worship in ancient Israel and in the early Church, and conclude with reflections on the significance of our findings for corporate worship today in his first lecture, "Corporate Worship: A Weekly Audience with God."

On Friday, January 19 at 7:00 PM, in his second lecture "Daily Life as Worship: The Ethical Mission of the People of God", Dr. Block will speak on how God's people are to celebrate their status as his chosen and commissioned agents of grace, and are to reenter the workaday world as "a holy people belonging to the Lord."

Both lectures are open to the public and free of charge.
