Exploring Symbolism in Episcopal Worship

with No Comments

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in Bloedel Hall and the cathedral nave. The first portion of the presentation also available via Zoom; optional community dinner at 6 p.m.

UPDATED DESCRIPTION: The opening theological reflection and overview portion of the forum will be available online. The second half of the forum will be a hands on, interactive experience in the cathedral nave and will not be livestreamed. 

This forum will explore some of the colors, gestures, and symbols we use in liturgy throughout the church year. We often notice that some things stay the same across the year, and some things change. Let’s learn together about what those things are and why these things all come together to form our worship experiences. Do you have specific questions? ("Why do some people bow at the gospel reading?" "Why are the icons covered up sometimes?" "Why do they use tree branches to sprinkle us?").

UPDATE: A video is now available below:
