Moravian liturgies, are they rich and grounding? old and boring? mumbled repetitions? Creative? stagnant? Depending on who I am with and how they are spoken, the liturgies can seem like any of the above.
We will begin by exploring the histories and content of our liturgies and consider what liturgies may need updating or reworking. Finally, we will work together to see how we might address these needs. Possibly creating new liturgies
