Ancient Solutions : Christian Consumerism & Liturgy

In this episode, Scottie and Spanky meet with the Reverend Frank Ritchie. Frank runs a church in Hamilton called Commoners that has no musical worship and centres itself around liturgy and silence. This episode asks how Frank's approach might offer a solution to the growing influence of consumerism on how congregations worship together today. You can find two of the resources we mentioned: A New Zealand Prayer Book : He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa, and Night Prayer No.6, below. A good place to start with the prayer book is the daily offices on p.111
