Why Liturgy Matters At Easter

https://i0.wp.com/lawsonstone.seedbed.com/files/2013/03/Lawson-Stone_avatar.jpgThis is an excellent post from our friend Dr Lawson Stone. Here’s a sample:

Too easily, non-liturgical churches in their desperation to be relevant to the “here and now” lose the power of the particular “there and then.” They move too quickly to the generic, “living Christ” without giving due regard to the Fact of the risen Jesus. The classical Easter liturgy calls our attention to this fact. He arose.  The Easter liturgy makes us listen to the whole story of the Passion, often read aloud in the service. It calls us to sing songs not of Christ’s ongoing life, but of Jesus who arose “up from the grave.”
