Women and Worship

Lex orandi lex credendi: the law of prayer determines the law of belief. The verbal and ritural language of our formal Christian worship forms and informs the hearts and minds of those who participate in it. Dr. Martin discusses how the public shape of worship can reflect and celebrate both the poverty and the richness of women and their experience as they worship in the assembly and as they lead the assembly in worship, Sunday after Sunday.
