Progressive liturgy resources below
I’m looking for an unapologetically progressive/liberal outlook on how to respond to the reality of COVID-19— and not give in to old-school intercessory appeals to an all-powerful theistic God controlling the universe. Also, what can “liturgy” look like when gatherings are cancelled and people are trying to stay connected via the internet and phone? How can we encourage people to leverage this moment for creative Jesus-inspired action in the world?
