This page is a grab bag of resources I’ve produced over the years: some for personal use, some for parish use, some for teaching in academic or other contexts.
Daily Office Books
This is a set of booklets I’ve been working on. It arranges Morning and Evening Prayer, Rite II, from the Prayer Book and Enriching Our Worship, with appropriate seasonal variation throughout the year. While a psalter and Bible are still needed, it eliminates the need for page-flipping back and forth. Antiphons on the gospel canticles are drawn from Howard Galley’s The Prayer Book Office. Certain opening sentences and canticles are slightly adapted for gender-inclusive language. My originals include images from Gertrud Mueller Nelson’s lovely clip art, which I’ve removed; if you’ve already purchased the clip art permissions for yourself or your parish, feel free to email me for the originals. I’ll post more of these as I complete them.
Here are three presentations I developed for a class at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in fall 2015. These cover models we teach in the College for Congregational Development which are helpful for thinking about the dynamics of church life.
Eucharistic Presence: Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed
This is a PowerPoint presentation I put together to help teach seminarians about the four major Western theories of eucharistic presence: Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist (receptionist), and Zwinglian (memorialist). Play it in slideshow mode for the full animated effect, with voice narration!
Anglican Eucharistic Prayers
Another PowerPoint, this one an in-depth exploration of the evolution of eucharistic prayers in the Anglican tradition. View this one in “speaker’s notes” mode to see most of the important content.
Serving at the Table Handout
I wrote this as a customary for our acolytes when I served as associate at St. Stephen’s, Seattle. It’s meant to provide the nuts and bolts of what to do when, but more importantly, to model attitudes and practices that make for effective liturgical formation. Written for teenagers as well as adults, in a place with a broad-church liturgical style.
