Liturgical Worship - Do you like it?

I enjoyed some liturgical worship today at the local Missouri Synod Lutheran church.

There are aspects of a liturgically structured service that I enjoy very much and others not so much. Like our own Pentecostal services, it's apparent there is plenty tradition - be that good or bad.

Liturgical? By that do you mean Hymns?

Actually the entire service. Very formal, alternate readings of scripture, a few candles... Reciting the Apostles creed... etc. (no incense, Holy water or icon busts of saints though)

Re: Liturgical Worship - Do you like it?

I enjoy visiting high church worship services that feature ritual and contemplative prayer. There are some things I like about it, there other things I don't like. Same as our low church worship style. I'd like to see a blend of both, that'd be cool.

Re: Liturgical Worship - Do you like it?

An interesting side note is that liturgical worship is allegedly patterned after scenes in Revelation with the incense etc.

I generally do not like liturgical worship. I probably had my fill of that growing up Catholic.

Re: Liturgical Worship - Do you like it?

I enjoy liturgical worship. The readings and responses keep the congregation grounded in the Word via the reading. The homilies are short and to the point, very little ranting, rambling, or drifting from topic to topic. If I remember correctly liturgical worship evolved in the first century church because there wasn't a "Bible" that each member brought to church. The appointed bishops and elders of a church often had the Scriptures and as NT letters were compiled they would read them aloud and the congregation would repeat the reading for both learning and memorization.

I have a close friend who is Catholic and she's invited me to come to Mass with her sometime in the near future. She lent me a Catechism, which I've been studying, and I'm looking forward to the service.
