Session 3: This session will focus on sacred music that directly or indirectly implies or advances anti-Judaism and supersessionism.
The music we sing in our liturgies, whether hymns or anthems form us and are a reflection of our theology. However, poetry is not always as clear cut and sometimes affords us room for broader interpretation. Sometimes it does not. We will focus on three categories in which to determine whether a sacred text is potentially dangerous or not:
- Texts that outright promote anti-Judaism or supersessionism and therefore have no place in the liturgy.
- Texts that if read a certain way could imply negativity toward the Jews and should be subject to clear preaching or catechesis.
- Texts that can be revised to erase anti-Judaism or supersessionism.
