When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, our times of worship changed in measurable ways. What did we learn about God and ourselves through that disembodied experience? How does the sensory affect our spirituality? Why did God create human bodies to be so, well, bodily in everything from procreation to waste elimination?

On today’s episode of The Russell Moore Show, Moore poses these questions to W. David O. Taylor. Taylor is a professor of Theology and Culture at Fuller Theological Seminary, a priest, and the author of several titles, including the recently released A Body of Praise: Understanding the Role of Our Physical Bodies in Worship. Moore and Taylor discuss the “intimate earthiness” of God’s creation of humanity and what it means to bear the divine image in our bodies. They talk about how the various church settings engage with the body, what Scripture has to say about our bodies, and the ways that abuse can harm a community’s understanding of the body.
Tune in for an insightful conversation of the physical, the spiritual, and how they weave together in our engagement with God and one another.
