Introducing "Variations on a Liturgical Theme"

Written by All for Hymn reader Micah Schmidt, a student at Concordia University, Austin, Texas, Variations on a Liturgical Theme - aka Liturgical Variations - just got up and running on December 2, 2009.

Micah describes Liturgical Variations as "A blog that includes a variety of topics, including alternative Bible translations, liturgy, hymnody, Gottestdienst, doctrine, and whatever else pops into my head."

Check out the first blog post here.  It features English Reformer William Tyndale.

Also, Micah has just started a series on Understanding the Liturgical Worship Service.  Here is an excerpt:

A brief history: the order of service originated as a Christianisation of the Old Testament worship liturgy. Over time various responses (mostly from Scripture) were added. By the mid 1st millenium A.D., the liturgy would have looked semi-familiar.

Stop on by Liturgical Variations for a good read and a cup of coffee, as long as you don't mind bringing your own coffee.
