Back in stock: Ceremony and Celebration

“Our attitude toward human rites and ceremonies is evangelical, not legalistic. Rubrics and directions do not proceed from the Law but from the Gospel. We do not want conformity on the basis of legal compunction, but on the basis of our new life in Jesus Christ by which we are made free from the curse of the Law and are enabled by the Holy Spirit to live more and more in Christian love and liberty.”

-Paul H. D. Lang in Ceremony and Celebration, an excellent resource for those who want to better understand why we do what we do in the Divine Service.
