Simplified Liturgies for Contemplative Worship

Sandy Smyth (Author)

Description

My purpose for writing this little book is to provide clergy, worship planners and lay persons a resource for simplifying liturgies that include a larger space for Silence.
I envision a Contemplative Worship movement growing within the main church.
The seed has been planted; a thirst and hunger for a return to simple church is sprouting. Courageous clergy are helping people who forego Sunday church services to connect to Christ within themselves, in Nature, and in Community in a more authentic, less formal way than that of the main church.
I believe that the Church as an institution must begin to simplify lengthy, tired liturgy to make larger spaces in worship for Silence and Contemplation.
Otherwise, liturgy is depriving congregants of a closer union with Christ's presence in their worship experience. God speaks to us in the Silence.
