City Liturgy

faithful and experimental

voices long silenced

church and culture

In a broken and fearful world
the Spirit gives us courage
to pray without ceasing,
to witness among all peoples to Christ as Lord and Savior, to unmask idolatries in Church and culture,to hear the voices of peoples long silenced,and to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace.

from a Brief Statement Of Faith (PCUSA)

from On Liturgical Asceticism by David W. Fagerberg: Liturgy is the trysting point where heaven, bending down, kisses earth, and earth, yearning upward, kisses heaven. 


An Internet Definition:  Liturgy is the customary public worship performed by a religious group. As a religious phenomenon, liturgy represents a communal response to and participation in the sacred through activity reflecting praise, thanksgiving, supplication or repentance. 
A modern city is a city that is able to support a large population concentrated in a limited space. --Greg Jackson
