Dr. Leonard Sweet Reflects on Time at IWS

LeonardSweet_06-13Dr. Leonard Sweet, Professor at Drew Theological School at Drew University and at George Fox University, spent time on the Institute for Worship Studies campus during the June 2013 intensive that included his leadership of a worship seminar. He had this to say:

“There are so many memories that keep resonating from my recent time teaching alumni from the Institute for Worship Studies. I have spoken at and attended many conferences, but never have I encountered better singing (especially in harmony) or more ‘joy of the Lord’ than from the IWS community. I also was impressed with how the faculty and staff of IWS are recovering an ancient definition of ‘liturgy’ as ‘the elder sibling of drama.’ Thanks to all my faculty colleagues and students at IWS.”
