Agenda for June 4th Liturgy Meeting

Opening Prayer:


Here are 12 issues for discussion. We can add more if needed. Dan and Steve would like to quickly poll the group to see if any of these even need to be discussed.

 

We would like to go through the topics by breaking into small groups of 4 for about 6 minutes to discuss the topic, regather into the large group and have one person present your groups points.

 

Then open it up for community discussion and decision making. While in the small groups, it would be helpful to follow “The Way of Council” like Alice led us at Enid’s.

 

The four pillars of this way are:

·      Speak from the heart,

·      Listen with your heart,

·      Spontaneity, and brevity of word or speech.

·      A talking piece is a great way to keep it on track. 

 

1.        A discussion about what is going on during our liturgies. Is our Eucharist the same or different from what we were taught during most of our upbringing?

If not the same, then why are we using the same rubric or form. What is the Eucharist for each of us? Steve

 

2.        Methods of receiving the bread and wine, Iona version, tincture method (dipping bread into cup),etc. Can the liturgy team decide this?

3.        Zoom: Inclusion vs Intrusion. Is there a way to be inclusive with less intrusion?

 

4.        A discussion about the quality of recent liturgies.

 

5.        A discussion regarding going outside the usual Roman Catholic/Episcopal format.

 

6.        A discussion about Resources? David

Music: live singing, recorded music. Technological issues with music, especially singing with Zoom. How does it come across to those on Zoom?

 

7.        Liturgical Themes

 

8.        Do we need a liturgy class? Can the movie about Teilhard substitute for a liturgy class? With focus on his “Mass on the World.”

 

9.        Offering liturgies for persons or causes? Joe Silva

 

10   Time for our liturgies? What time do we want to meet.

 

11   Should we have some joint liturgies with the Knox communities?
