Liturgy: The Work of the People: a Zoom Class

November 25, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 16, 2020

Led by:  The Rev. Dr. Deonna Neal
Time: Wednesday nights from 6.30 pm to 7.30 pm on Zoom
Dates: October 14th to December 16th
We have a new rector and we haven’t had communion since March.  In anticipation of returning to in-person communion services you might be wondering:  What might change?  What will remain the same?  Why? Also, under John’s leadership, we can anticipate a renewed emphasis on congregational participation and lay ministries.  To serve these ends, this course hopes to accomplish two major goals.  The first is to examine the different elements of the service of Holy Eucharist Rite II (BCP 1979) and recall the basic theological truths about God and the People of God that the liturgy communicates.  The second major goal is to pay special attention to the roles of 1) the congregation; 2) lay ministers; and 3) ordained ministers within the services to show why the word “liturgy” is literally defined as “the work of the people.”  The class will also include discussions on different ways St. John’s can emphasize welcoming, hospitable and inclusive practices through worship and liturgy.
