Adventures in Ministry – March 17, 2009

One of the best adventures in ministry as a young clergy person is to just be young sometimes. My wife, Nicole, and I camped out along with Dave, Dagney, Jeff and Heather for the chance to get free wings for a year at the Buffalo Wild Wings which opened yesterday at 10:00 AM. Some great links:

We missed the 100 person cutoff by about a dozen, but had an amazing time hanging out and building relationships.

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?
