Easter isn’t a finish line—it’s our kickoff to a season of celebration. Still, pastors can be forgiven for admitting that after Holy Week, they are a little exhausted. Whether your church hosts vigils, daily services, or some other Easter extravaganza, there is a lot to juggle.
Especially tricky is managing the liturgies. Palms and Passion, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday; Holy Week requires a lot of attention and decision-making. Church leaders seek to balance the demands of the text with the needs of their context.
Well, how did that go for you this year? What input or insight would you offer those who are hard at work crafting our province’s prayer book?
Whether or not you currently use the ACNA’s Texts for Common Prayer in your worship, you have years of experience and expertise as a practitioner—we need your voice!
On April 10, LeaderWorks will facilitate a webinar from the meeting of the ACNA’s Liturgy Taskforce as they work on common texts for liturgical use for our province. We hope to provide an opportunity to hear from the faithful men and women who have put in years of hard work on this prayer book. In October 2017, we were able to hear the principles that have guided them in creating and revising the texts, and they graciously addressed some of the common questions that have arisen through the process.
Last time, we focused on the Daily Offices and Holy Eucharist. During this session, we will focus on the special liturgies for Lent and Holy Week as well as other Pastoral Rites.
Register for this event today. While the events will be streamed on Facebook Live and recordings will be posted on the LeaderWorks website, only 100 webinar participants will be able to interact with the panel.
Register Now: April 10, 10:30 AM (EST)
Before the event, take some time to review the working texts. If you can’t join us live, we will post a recording after the event. You can even leave a comment on our Facebook post with your question—we’ll try to work it in!
