Reply To: Are there elements of ancient and/or modern Near Eastern Christianity that are present in your own church/faith life? If so, what are they? If not, would you be open to implementing any?

Hi Michael,

I too appreciated the course’s focus on developing an importance of the physical in the liturgy – emphasizing the importance of the senses in interacting with approved instruments. Chanting is one great aspect of that – I have longed to learn how to chant so that I may better appreciate the Eastern Orthodox way of liturgy, and how using my voice in that way may glorify God in ways that would be harder to do with my standard voice alone.
