ANGLICANISM 101 – LITURGY – Spent force or present blessing
Session ONE – October 2016

Thursday Oct 20, 1 p.m. in the Hall
Monday Oct 24, 7 p.m. in the Ruth Room (basement)

In this the first of a series of monthly gatherings, the Dean will lead a conversation and share experiences and reflection on Anglicans in worship, Anglicans who worship, Anglicans who love worship . . .

Not only at St. Paul’s, but in most Anglican churches, liturgical worship is the dominant drawing card and practice which keeps folks coming back. Our tradition, drawing heavily from Roman Catholic tradition but heavily influences by protested values and beliefs, is so very rich. The resource of tradition contributes theology, philosophy, rhetoric, poetry, scripture and sacramental practice to our worship. Our worship however requires constant renewal in order to be relevant, vital, inspirational, truthful and faithful. These two forces can mesh well, but create the energy for a lot of controversy, especially in the last three decades of Anglican debate and practice.

Come one, come all, and be part of this lively conversation. Share what you know, what you need to know, and possibly, influence the way we worship together here at St. Paul’s.
