Why Liturgy? An online Lenten pilgrimage.
Have you ever wondered why we say the things we say, and do the things we do during worship? If so, as your Lenten practice this year you might consider taking an online pilgrimage through Evangelical Lutheran liturgy.
Starting Ash Wednesday, the website https://www.whyliturgy.ca will be posting about 200 words each day on a different part of the liturgy. Each post contains insights on the origins and theological underpinnings of a part of the liturgy. Posts will be accompanied by photos taken in the Holy Land, Turkey and Rome; and at St. Matthews Evangelical Lutheran Church (Kitchener) and Waterloo Lutheran Seminary.
The journey is being shared by Mirko Petricevic, the seminary’s director of communications and public affairs. He created the visual study guide while working toward a Master of Theological Studies degree at WLS. The project was supervised by Rev. Dr. Mark Harris, who now serves as the seminary’s principal-dean.
You will be able to also follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Links to social media platforms are available on https://www.whyliturgy.ca. StoneMir Media is the name Mirko uses for his freelance projects and labours of love.
