Well Designed for Worship

Pastor Caleb Bassett serves as the chairman of the Technology Committee of the new hymnal project. The Institute asked Pastor Bassett to write an essay for our annual meeting to explore the future of technology in worship in WELS.

In the essay, Pastor Bassett suggests reading a senior thesis by Seminarian Kent Reeder. You can access that thesis here.

A thousand baptisms, weddings, funerals, confirmations, anniversaries, Christmases and Easters all testify that this ambitious vision of creating a digital worship compendium is worth the time, expense, and effort. We will bring the power of Lutheran worship and its life-giving focus on the Means of Grace to as many people as possible. This vision for a living, breathing digital worship compendium is cut from the same cloth as our love for the gospel. It’s time to design the future of worship.
