New year, new ideas?

Recently added to this site are:

a link to “Worship Words“, a great UK-based resource offering free progressive worship resources using inclusive language! Liturgists are welcome to contribute to it, too; and

a new prayer by Rev Ken Irwin, “e Te Atua God, you come to us as Te Hou the wind…”. You might like to keep it in mind for Pentecost.

And here’s a great quote from Mark Searle, from the website of the Catholic Bishops Conference, about The Liturgical Year : te Whakaritenga e Tau:

“Picking up the liturgical calendar to see “where we are” in time, and “who we are”, according to the liturgical year is like choosing to ride the carousel of sayings and stories, songs and prayers, processions and silences, images and visions, symbols and rituals, feasts and fasts in which the mysterious ways of God are not merely presented, but experienced, not merely perused, but lived through – the challenge is to address ourselves to the liturgical year on its own terms, the terms of the imagination.”

May this year bring you many blessings!
