With so many words out there, I do occasionally ask myself: Why blog? That answer varies from day today, but in general I think I blog because I want to connect – connect with parishioners, with friends, with strangers who for whatever reason have found their way to this site. And I love that reading this blog is optional – if you don’t like, you don’t ever have to visit again.
About the liturgy: as the pastor of a congregation, each week (or nearly each week – I’m not the only pastor at our church) I prepare the bulletin (program) for Sunday morning worship. Some weeks the liturgy just flows out of me, and some weeks I am looking in every single book, web site, and scrap of paper I can find trying to locate a decent prayer or litany. So here are some I have written. I thought they might be helpful to other worship bulletin preparers, but if you find them of use for your devotional life, mazel tov!
