Against Liturgy…thoughts from Doug Wilson

One of the most captivating lectures at the Auburn Avenue Conference came from Pastor Douglas Wilson. Wilson entitled his talk: Against Liturgy. This was a play on Leithart’s classic: Against Christianity. In his book, Leithart is opposing the “ism” of Christianity, not Christianity itself. Wilson’s argument against Liturgy was an argument of caution. He noted that many have pursued liturgical reform to the detriment of other elements of worship. Some in the Anglo/Catholic tradition have emphasized liturgical structures so much that they have lost sight of the preached word. The Biblical proclamation is nothing but an added footnote to the worship service. In this case, we are to be against liturgy.
