MetadataShow full item record
This research concentrated on the worldwide ecumenical, and emerging South African, interest in missional ecclesiology; as this missional renaissance does have important implications when considering the development of a missional liturgy. In this research the important role of church music in liturgy is acknowledged, as well as the impact of church music on ecclesial identity and character; by employing the concept of “transductive” or “trans-incarnational” experience in liturgy to create an embodied liturgy that gives life and hope and leads to spiritual transformation. It is suggested that utilisation of Leonard Sweet’s concepts of liturgy that are experiential participatory, iconic, and connective will facilitate in the development of transductive missional liturgy. Church music can play a very important role, and relates closely to these concepts; as music serves a missional spirituality. It is an ideal instrument to aid experience and addresses the most intimate part of life – religious life. Music creates transductive experiences and transports participants to the new world of Christ’s kingdom. Music also connects a congregation, as it is – at its core – participatory. Improvisations open up exciting possibilities to disrupt the conventional borders between composer, performer, and audience. In this way, music can assist missional theology in giving dynamic expression to theological concepts.
