The Power of the World Cup

This weekend is the finals of the World Cup.

This amazing sports event connects nations, continents and the world in a game of sport.

What event similarly connects the church?

I believe the Jesus’ incarnation and resurrection as well as communion and baptism are all key connections across the church.

How do you respond?

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?
