I ordered a book yesterday from Amazon (I get free shipping) and it came tonight. It's called
Common Prayer, A Liturgy For Ordinary Rebels
by Shane Claiborne, et al
I have always gone to a liturgical church. It's part of my life and when I visited other churches, I felt lost and alone. My husband went to a Covenant Church when he was in Amway because his sponsors told him that it was good for the business. It was a huge church, 7 services over 2 days. But it was cold. They had the obligatory "praise" band, piano, and an organ that sometimes was played. But I didn't get the Love of God there. I got the feel good prosperity gospel, I didn't get what I needed. So I didn't join. When a lady said "Why don't you go to church with your husband?" I answered, I have been a member of the same church for over 30 years, and up to 2 months ago, so was he. I didn't see the need to uproot my children from what they knew just to make him look good. (and Amway is still a cult in my mind).
Anyway this book could be used for a church, it can be used alone, and it is interesting.
So tonight I leave you with this:
May the Peace of the Lord Christ go with you: wherever he may send you;
may he guide you through the wilderness: protect you through the storm;
may he bring you home rejoicing: at the wonders he has shown you;
may he bring you home rejoicing: once again into our doors.
Peace and good night.
