Top 10 Reasons We Use The Liturgy
A snippet: In the church, it seems that indifference, ignorance, and preference comes from all sides, not just from the innovators on side but the conservatives on the other. Isn’t it true that too often, each perspective essentially sees the liturgy passively — as a peculiar set of preferences, and “just the way we do things at our church.” Both are wrong because neither really takes the time to get it. They take it for granted and essentially view the liturgy the same way but from different perspectives, failing to consider the confessional reasons why we in the church use the liturgy.

Our Savior Lutheran Church, Pagosa Springs, is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) and is committed to the doctrine of the Lutheran Church as presented in The Book of Concord. What this means is that we are thoroughly committed to everything the Bible teaches. We are a congregation uniquely devoted to liturgical worship, to catechesis (Christian education), and to the centrality of the Holy Communion and other Sacraments in the life of the Christian.
