Worship, Eucharist and the Vulnerable God

Johnston R McKay

Reflecting critically, in the light of widespread alienation from the church, on a recent Songs of Praisebroadcast following a natural disaster, Johnston R McKay, in his 2005 Lee Lecture, asks how public ‘public’ worship should be. He refers to much modern theological talk of the vulnerable God as unduly prescriptive and failing to connect with many contemporaries, and suggests that music provides space and atmosphere to develop their own spiritual convictions.
