Your Turn / Re: Easter Vigils

Although there is no Eucharist offered, the Easter Vigil is done very well - very reverently.  Fr. Kind is an awsome liturgist.  Any of you Twin Citians would be most welcome.  Service begins quite early at 7:30 pm.  Begins outside with a procession into the church following the Service of Light outside.  (No champagne afterwards).

Our Pastor always looks mighty dapper wearing his cope at Easter Vigil.

With regard to the Eucharistic prayer, I'd say, "IT'S OK to PRAY".  (or is there a trademark on that?)

Don't forget there's the option of skipping Sundays after Michaelmass.

Our congregation kinda-sorta has an Easter Vigil.  It consists of the Service of Light (Exsultet), the Service or Readings - several readings with Chanted responses to each (or at least most), the rememberance of Holy Baptism.  It concludes abruptly with the reading of the Easter Gospel.  BUT, no Mass is offered.   Pastor says maybe some year.  University Lutheran--LCMS, Mpls.

If it is "Green Thursday", why is the liturgical colour WHITE?

I find the Orthodox Study Bible to have some very interesting and helpful footnotes.

(Plus, the Old Testament/Dueterocanotical books use the Septuagint!)

Politically, at least, there is something to the idea that the ELCA has become Methodist; the LCMS has become Baptist.

For some reason, politics seems to be a field ex-ministers get into.

In the event of a schism in the LCMS:

The Gnesio-Lutherans can be:
Evangelical Confessional Catholic Liturgical Episcopal Synod in America
(or ECCLESIA, for short.)

The other party can be:
American Brotherhood of Lutherans Acting Zeolously for Evangelization
(A B L A Z E)

I'd love to see the following as the name of the church body formed if/when a schism occurs in the LCMS:

Evangelical Confessional Catholic Liturgical Episcopal Synod in America
(or ECCLESIA, for short.)
