Resumen

SONNENBERG, Ronelle; NEL, Malan; DE KOCK, Jos  y  BARNARD, Marcel. Being together in youth worship: An empirical study in Protestant Dutch contexts. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.2, pp.01-10. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I2.2832.

In a qualitative empirical research project on youth worship, we discovered that 'being together' is primary quality of youth worship. This primary quality consists of at least four aspects. Firstly, community is celebrated through physical presence. More specifically, the physical presence of siblings plays an important part in the participation of youth in worship. Secondly, an empathetic and emotional aspect is essential for adolescents. 'Being together' in youth worship means being together in unity and trust and in equality, as kindred spirits. Thirdly, 'being together' in youth worship yields possibilities to cross social and ecclesiological boundaries. Fourthly, there is a theological aspect in 'being together' that could be described as 'sharing faith and being in God's presence'.
