Making Church Work for Everyone
May 7, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EDT
St. Lydia’s Dinner and Waffle Church places practice before belief, trusting that the practice of eating, praying and singing together moves them deeper into faith. That philosophy is at the crux of this presentation by Rebecca Stevens, which focuses on the challenges of making worship work for everyone. Rebecca is a classically trained violinist and vocalist. She has performed for children in libraries, bar hoppers in New Orleans, churchgoers in sanctuaries and choral aficionados at Carnegie Hall. Rebecca addresses how St. Lydia’s creates a worship space that is inviting in New York’s social climate, in the Brooklyn neighborhood that St. Lydia’s is situated in, and in the doctrine of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America).
