Bad Liturgy And Bad Theology

It’s been suggested here and elsewhere that I’m a bit picky and paranoid even when it comes to liturgy. And that certainly may be so. But there are reasons for that.

One big reason is that good liturgy reflects and teaches good theology. Even in liberal or otherwise doctrinally errant churches, IF they stick to good liturgy, good theology is taught in spite of themselves.

But bad theology and bad liturgy feed on each other. We can see that in North America. And, sadly, that can be seen even in the Church of England.

God help me (and the perpetrators) if I encounter stuff like that while I’m over there.
