Worship matters. It really does. And this is why the work of the Center for Liturgy and Music is so important. They provide tools and resources to enliven music, liturgy, and preaching in the parish. They also provide workshop-type events to educate clergy and laity, and even consultation. Tomorrow the CLM is offering Worship Matters: The Art of Psalm Singing, led by William Bradley Roberts, Professor of Church Music and Ellen Johnston, Director of the Center for Liturgy and Music. It is too late to register for this great event but fear not, there is more to come.
On Saturday, March 10 the CLM is offering Worship Matters: The Ritual Use of Incense, led by James Farwell, Professor of Liturgics. This two-hour event will explore the history of the practice as well as an introduction on how to use incense neatly and safely. The workshop is free and a great way to learn about the ritual use of incense.
Be sure to check out the CLM's resources and consider attending the event next Saturday. Not every time/space is safe to practice swinging a thurible, but this one is!
