Open Source Liturgy Project – Day 1

I am at the first session of the Open Source Liturgy Project hosted by the General Board of Discipleship of the United Methodist Church in lovely Nashville. I flew in on Southwest Airlines this afternoon and had a great experience getting out of the airport and to the shuttle on to Scarritt Bennett where I will be staying for the next couple nights.

I am excited about the potential of this project to create and share liturgy for baptism, communion, weddings and funerals that will breathe a breath of fresh air into the worship of churches.

I will be taking notes with Google Docs and you can check them out here.

LifeChurch.tv Internet Campus – Not (3 of 8)

Over the life of the internet campus at LifeChurch.tv there are several things that it has not done.

  • No children
  • No youth
  • No funerals
  • No weddings

Resources provided at Open | LifeChurch.tv have and are being used for children and youth programming for groups that gather to worship on the internet campus together. Brandon, Internet Campus Pastor, said that he had never received a request for a funeral or a wedding.
