Join Worship and Nationalism Reading Group (Grand Rapids, MI)

I am organizing an informal reading / discussion group in Grand Rapids on the relationship between nationalism/patriotism and worship and formation.

Is there an appropriate place for patriotism in corporate worship? How can worship help reframe our understanding of national identity and national belonging?

My plan is that we’d read two books: Craig Watts’ Bowing Toward Babylon and J. Nelson Kraybill’s Apocalypse and Allegiance: Worship, Politics, and Devotion in the Book of Revelation.

The group will be funded by a grant that I have received from the Calvin Institute for Christian Worship. Books and breakfast/lunch would be paid for by the grant. I’m thinking of meeting in late March/April.

If you are interested in participating, just send me an email at [email protected]
