Word of the Week: Liturgy

January 28, 2019

Lutherans are familiar with the word "Liturgy" while many others are not. In fact there is a trend in our society away from liturgical or "orderly" worship. The word simply means ministry or service. The concept of Christian worship is founded on the words of Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:40: "Let all things be done decently and in order." The use of liturgy is not a new concept, but goes back to the very early Christian church. It includes these points: It confesses the Trinity. It confesses Christ. It is Evangelical. It is Historic. It confesses the Creeds. These qualities of our liturgy are taken from and based on the truths of Scripture, and are used by God to serve us!
