In each congregation that I have been in, there has been a desire to understand the Sunday service better - not just as a program apart from worship but as an appropriate "real-time" commentary within the Sundaymorning service itself. These services are often known as "Instructed Eucharists." Today, Feb. 11th, at both services, we will have such an opportunity. At various parts in the worship, I will comment on why we do what we do. I will make sure to do so without, hopefully, ruining the spirit of worship.
Why are we doing what we are doing? Why do we read from so many parts of the Bible each week? Why do some people bow or cross themselves? Why do we kneel, stand, or sit when we do? There is no limit on the questions so, if you have any of your own, please ask them during the sermon time.
