Hello all, My name is Josef. I began attending my local Anglican Church of England about three months ago. The Reverand has asked me if I would assist in the liturgy in some manner (I do not know the names for the procession roles - casting the incense, etc.) Having come out of a Charismatic tradition, the concept of liturgy could not be more foreign to me - though I am willing to learn from and engage with it. I told the Reverend that I would be happy to help, but admitted my ignorance. I have a couple of questions I hope those with greater experience can cast light upon: 1) Are there resources (books, etc.) you could recommend, that would help explain the liturgy, its history and significance etc.? 2) Do you believe it's wrong for me to serve in this manner, when I am so inexperienced in the Anglican tradition? I am happy to help where available, but perhaps carrying boxes is a more suitable work for now. Finally, there is a further complication. The Reverend intimated that he desired a move away from the... oranate clothing worn by those serving (it's quite a High church), to a more simplistic outfit. He implied that by serving in this more simplistic outfit I would be helping to 'promote his cause' to what I think may be a resistant congregation. The last thing I desire is to be a pawn in church politics! But, he is the Reverend, and I believe in submitting to spiritual authorities. Thank you for any insight or comments you can bring. I am eager to learn all I can. Regards.
