Feed My Lambs

Pr. James Moshier steps “into the ring” to discuss his homily delivered at the 2015 Spring Pastors Conference in Kearney, Nebraska. When the risen Lord Jesus works a great catch of fish and when He instructs Peter to feed His lambs (John 21:1-17), we also receive Jesus’ admonition to pastors to feed the flock through faithful, lifelong catechesis. It might even include something called “liturgical trivia.”

Why I Use the Liturgy, part 2 (continued)

BJS_BruceTimmWhat other reasons does Pr. Bruce Timm have for using the Church’s liturgy? How does the liturgy teach the young and sustain the old? Isn’t the liturgy “boring”? And that’s a good thing? How does it unite us in confessing the faith as a synod? (or was it “senate”?) How does using the liturgy help us to “be green,” or environmentally friendly?

Read Pr. Timm’s articles, “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” (Reasons #1-3)

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #4”

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #5”

and “Why Do I Use the Liturgy? Reason #6”

Why I Use the Liturgy, part 2

BJS_BruceTimmPr. Bruce Timm just had to come back to smack down the hosts – especially Eric! – as he continues discussing his articles titled “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” Did Adam and Eve have the liturgy in the Garden of Eden? What does the book of Leviticus teach us about the Church’s liturgy in our day? What can the book of Acts teach us on using the liturgy?

Why I Use the Liturgy

BJS_BruceTimmPr. Bruce Timm joins us to discuss his article, “Why Do I Use the Liturgy?” In a world filled with cotton-candy, entertainment-style worship, why would we actually want to use the Church’s liturgy? We discuss Pr. Timm’s first three reasons – out of eleven – for why he uses the liturgy. Also, listen carefully to how deftly Pr. Timm smacks down both hosts of the show!
