Some of the stuff that’s ended up on this blog has been pretty specific – to a particular occasion, or exploring a particular prayer within the liturgy. But some of the entries and articles have been more broad and general.
Perhaps the most important sentence I’ve ever written (in the context of this blog) is this:
The Prayer Book is our liturgy.
It is, not contains, our liturgy. If you think of the Prayer Book as a book that “contains” or “has” the liturgy that we use, then the book is still just a tool, and not your companion on the way. Anglicanism doesn’t “use” liturgy, it “follows” or “goes with” liturgy. The first article listed below, What is liturgy? explains this in further detail.
From there, feel free to peruse some of the other basic questions of liturgy that perhaps you’ve never quite managed to put into words yet. Not that I’ve got all the answers either, but it’s a work in progress we’ve got over here 🙂
