Steadfast Media Pick of the Week — Liturgical Picks

Liturgical Picks

Pr. Weedon’s epic 24 part series on The Historic Liturgy wrapped up last week. [Issuesetc.org]. For those of you who are in withdrawal I have two additional liturgical series. One is on “The Liturgy of Holy Baptism” and the other is on “The Liturgy of Sickness, Death, and Dying.”

Steadfast Media Pick of the Week — Liturgical Picks — 2 Comments

  1. Pr. Weedon gave you a detailed explanation of the parts of the liturgy. Your probably knew a lot of what he said because of seminary training or your own reading. Your congregation does not! By the time a member gets to middle age, he can repeat (sing) without thinking almost any part of the liturgy, especially with an organ prompt. That does not mean that he understands it or gets it in the heart in the way Pr. Weedon expressed it.

    Therefore, I recommend that you spend 30 seconds of each service to explain one part of the liturgy to your congregation. This may take six months or a year, but so what. Add your explanation to the bulletin for review.

    During a baptism, our pastor explains why we have baptism, what is happening, and how we the members participate now and in the future. He may do this because we have a lot of visitors; also, because the next generation is so important that the explanation reinforces our commitment to them.

  2. Mr. Davis,
    I think your suggestion of explanations in the bulletin is wonderful. I’m more of a “do the red, say the black” type so I’m not big on in-service explanation. I don’t think it is strictly necessary to understand any parts of the liturgy to receive the benefits they confer. I think understanding the liturgy is most important for those who wish to defend it against those who would change it or help those who don’t see the value in it.

    The Baptismal Rite itself, at least in LSB (p. 268), does a pretty good job of explaining the where’s and why’s to those present.
