If you grew up in low church evangelical spaces like we did, liturgy might not have featured heavily in your spiritual upbringing. In fact, you may not be familiar with it at all.
Liturgical elements in worship services include things like call and response prayers, corporate recitations of key biblical passages, creeds, or blessings, or communion as a central part of gathered worship.
While many Protestant denominations practice elements of liturgy, many evangelicals have tended to shy away from them. That is, until recently, as younger evangelicals have begun to express renewed interest in some of these ancient practices.
In this episode, we discuss the history of liturgy and liturgical practices, why they are so compelling, their benefits, as well as how uncritically adopting some of these practices may be accompanied by pitfalls.
