A Common Liturgy, August 6
A Common Liturgy
A Summer Experiment in Worship Times and Style
July 23-September 3
From July 23 through September 3, Sunday worship will be at 9:00 a.m and 10:30 a.m.
A survey sent to the congregation this week showed overwhelmingly positive responses to A Common Liturgy, with less than 10 percent of respondents expressing negative opinions about the worship times or style of worship. As we explore in this week’s reading (see below), there “signs of a major shift. It is most noticeable among those congregations that have moved from multiple worship styles back to one worship style.” The worship wars, they say, are over, and with them the divisiveness they created. Rather, people are interested in the content, authenticity, and quality of a worship service, not its particular style.
We’d still like to hear from you about A Common Liturgy, especially those of you who usually attend the 9:45 service and those who have children in Sunday School. You’ve been underrepresented in the survey responses we’ve received so far. Respond to the survey here.
On Sunday, August 6, Jason Micheli will preach. The text is Romans 12:1-2, 9-21. His title is “What the Therefore Is There For.”

We hope you will be there Sunday morning!
