Sermons From 2021 Online Calvin Symposium on Worship

The all-online 2021 Symposium on Worship took us around the world through a variety of worship services recorded in many places and nations.  Six of the services featured sermons that together encompassed the whole of Romans 8, a key New Testament chapter that was chosen to be a key theme for Symposium 2021 in order to address the trauma and sorrow of 2020 and to seek to cast a Gospel light of hope on this present darkness. Several other worship services also included sermons by pastors from all over the world. We hope these services and sermons are a blessing to you.
