Liturgy in the Corps

Liturgy is not dead … at least not in institutions which are carefully drilled, ready for action, and deadly in combat. The Church could learn a lot from the Marine Corps, according to an Episcopal priest writing in Touchstone: Rites & Wrongs of Passage.

Imagine trying to run the Marines the way some people run worship! You fight like you drill, you play like you practice, and worship is warfare.

  1. A very well written and informative article. Highly recommended reading in this age of “casual” worship styles.
