On October 21st, we shared the Creation New Liturgy with the Willow Creek community. Our band worked hard to capture the sounds, grooves, and textures…and my friend Stephen Proctor created a “visual liturgy” that took our breath away. The production team masterfully supported it all, and most importantly, the Willow community jumped in to sing, pray, and worship from their toes. It was a really beautiful weekend.
More and more, we’re discovering that A New Liturgy is meant to be experienced by a community. The readings take on a new energy, the songs become anthems, and the prayers transform into holy acts of solidarity. It’s no surprise that the word “Liturgy” literally means “the work of the people”. Indeed.
And so we’re really excited to share this video of the 11:15am service with you. The music was re-mixed but not fixed, so what you hear is exactly what happened in the room. It’s not the same as being there, of course, but we hope it pulls you into the beauty of God’s Creation and reminds you that “The Creator of the entire universe knows your name”.
