Representing the gospel in structure

“The structure of a church’s liturgy also inevitable tells its understanding of the gospel story. This means the worship structures that communicate the gospel are themselves shaped by the gospel. ‘The medium is the message’ because the messages shapes the medium…Just as preaching represents the gospel in word, and as the sacraments represent the gospel in symbol, so also the liturgy represents the gospel in structure.”

-Bryan Chapell in Christ-Centered Worship (2009), p. 85, 118
