posted by Robert Gelinas

What’s a jazz theologian?  Let’s divide and conquer. What is jazz? Most people think of jazz as music, I think that it is more than music.  Music happens to be the realm in which most of us recognize it but […]

Called to Worship (p7)

posted by Robert Gelinas

So that’s what I’ve learned by looking up at old church bells.  Perhaps, what we are discovering is that we need a theology of worship that matches what we believe worship to be. If we believe that the church should […]

Called to Worship (p6)

posted by Robert Gelinas

What if today, the whole worship service is the ringing of the bell–the call to worship? What if people are so pressured and exhausted that when they arrive in the pews (on time I might add) they are in no […]

posted by Robert Gelinas

Could it be that contemporary pastors and worship leaders are glorified Quasimodo’s?  Modern day Hunchback’s of Notre Dame! I beginning to think so.  When we stand before God’s people it isn’t that they do not have clocks or watches.  Quite […]

Bell ringing became an art and it even gained a fancy latin name:  Campanology, the study of bells. There were two main ways to ring the church bell…

Called to Worship (p1)

posted by Robert Gelinas

Look up at most church buildings that are over a hundred years old and one thing you’ll notice is the bell tower.  Now days, if these are ever used, it is for special occasions, holidays, weddings, events like that. Originally, […]
