Liturgy — Getting in Shape

Powerful liturgy teaches and forms our ideas in both explicit and non-verbal ways. Worship can shape a congregation in practices of radical sending. These resources can help you get started. As your congregation creates its own radical sending liturgies, share them on this site, using the form below.

… and music

The music we use in liturgy is especially powerful. As St. Augustine is quoted as saying, “He who sings prays twice.” Below you’ll find lists of hymns from popular Episcopal and Lutheran hymn collections. If you’d like to add a song or hymn that expresses “radical sending,” please use the form at the bottom of this page.
