I'm curious about the format for these services, Pr Weedon. Perhaps this is something I could offer in my parish. Can you expand on this?
Service of Prayer and Preaching. In place of a sermon, though, we have a time for catechesis (as LSB indicates: or catechetical instruction). You can google our Catechism service for this blog and I think you'll find some video recordings of how we do it. Pax!
OK. Thanks.I'm not familiar with the LSB, so it's not immediately apparent to me what the Service of Prayer and Preaching consists of. It sounds like our (Lutheran Church of Australia) rather oddly named 'Service Without Communion'.
Ah, let me give you the outline. I assumed you'd have a copy of LSB by now! :)HymnOpening Versicles (seasonal)OT CanticleReadingRecitation of Ten Commandments, Creed, Our FatherRecitation of the Catechism assigned for day (yesterday, Commandments 1-3 with explanations)Catechetical InstructionHymn (yesterday Luther's 10 commandments hymn stanzas 1-4)LitanyPrayer of DayMorning/Evening PrayerNT CanticleBenediction
Many thanks, William.I can adapt this.Yes, I really should have LSB - it's on my wishlist.I have the Pastoral Care Companion, which I appreciate very much.
