Millennials Need Worship that’s Been Around for Millennia


I would highly encourage our readers to head over and read this post. Why look to create new worship when true worship has existed for 2,000 years?

  1. Hmm. Joel, this was my comment on their blog site. I’ll repeat it here for discussion.

    Having experienced that Divine Liturgy as a child growing up, I fail to see the connection the author is making. It felt to me as if I were on the outside watching priests and others act out a play. I accent ACT.

    I did not participate for the most part and even when I did, I was not being invited in but was another prop in the play.

    I do not think this is what millennials are looking for. While it may appear authentic, it was all very practiced. Obviously I am not a millennial, but as the father of two, I don’t think my experiences then are experiences they would value today.

    1. A good observation and a good point. I would respond and say that I think the original piece is dealing specifically with Orthodox Divine Liturgy; those of the Anglican/Episcopal, Roman Catholic, and other liturgical traditions tend to stray away (I’d say the Anglicans stray much further away than the Romans). Even so, it’s easy for priests to go through the motions, but the argument in the article is that this represents the spiritual condition and not the worship itself. The protestant evangelical worship seems to be empty by design, though it doesn’t need to be.
