The Joy of Public Worship: the 1987 Lee Lecture

Rev Charles Robertson

Starting from Neil Gunn, the lecture explores the concept of joy as it appears throughout Scripture, discusses the current theme of play and the emphasis on creativity and the employment of people's gifts in worship, and calls for worship of greater joyousness and excitement. This will be undergirded by a recovery of the balance (and the lecture explores how historically this was lost to Scottish worship) of Word and Sacrament in worship.
