At the Open Source Liturgy Project there was a good deal of conversation about incorporating traditions or rituals that are native to a particular culture into the liturgy of the church. This is a great plan.
I live the suburbs and am having trouble coming up with suburban traditions or rituals. Here are some of my thoughts, but I know there have to be better ones…
- Soccer games
- Going to Starbucks
- Walking the dog
- High school football games
What else would you add? How could they be incorporated into liturgy?
This morning we are finding out more about the expectations for what is to come next. Each person here will be gathering a group to write liturgies in each of the following areas:
- Holy Communion
- Death and Resurrection
- Christian Marriage
Here is a presentation on Understanding the Open Source Cores for the Open Source Liturgy Project of the General Board of Discipleship. This was put together by the staff at GBOD and I uploaded it to Google Docs as we were given a CD with resources to use and share. Check it out:
Let me know what you think.
