WORSHIP AT ST. LAIKA’S — 2 Comments

  1. Dear MP,
    A lovely EP, thank you! Somehow, the older translation says things more directly…..
    An interesting observation from my youngest daughter who is self-employed as a seamstress of interior design home items. A very modern woman who live in San Francisco. She had been working very hard this past fall and Advent season and has not been a church goer for a number of years. By Christmas eve she was very tired and yet realized that she needed to observe Christmas and so out the door she went to Grace Cathedral.
    It was standing room only,but she said: “I was so stressed and tired, but I closed my eyes a bit and the RHYTHM gently pulled me in, I left there in peace.”
    A while ago the blogger “Lay Anglicana” had a discussion of liturgy and someone mentioned the ‘cadence’ of Anglican liturgy. Maybe that’s what I have been trying to describe and why adding music is such a delicate operation.
    Some music goes with the flow and some just interrupts the flow. This is not a critique, just still struggling with the mysteries of effective liturgy and as Mrs Slocum would say “I am unanimous in that”.
    This was a truly lovely gem, and thanks again!

  2. Thanks, Nij. I’m working on a liturgical project at the moment and have made the deliberate choice to write with the cadence rather than going for “plain English.” I’m not using traditional language but neither am I shying away from using churchy words. My choosing to do this comes from the positive reactions I have received for the traditional services I have posted over the last year or so.
