Liturgy in a time of isolation

Progressive liturgy resources below

David Felton, Pastor at The Fountains, a United Methodist Church and Co-Creator at Living the Questions, contacted Rex Hunt and our friends in Common Dreams with this message:

I’m looking for an unapologetically progressive/liberal outlook on how to respond to the reality of COVID-19— and not give in to old-school  intercessory appeals to an all-powerful theistic God controlling the universe. Also, what can “liturgy” look like when gatherings are cancelled and people are trying to stay connected via the internet and phone? How can we encourage people to leverage this moment for creative Jesus-inspired action in the world?

We’re collating and sharing the various responses: click on the links below.
