What are suburban traditions or rituals?

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.

Except…

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
  • Commuting

What else would you add? How could they be incorporated into liturgy?

Open Source Liturgy Project – Day 3

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
  • Baptism
  • 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:
