Anglican-Lutheran national worship conference begins

Gathering around a fountain in Wallenberg Square, part of Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Montreal, Que., to remember and give thanks for the gift of baptism, the 2008 National Worship Conference of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) began with opening Eucharist on the evening of Wednesday, June 25.

Fast becoming a tradition in partnership, the ELCIC/ACC National Worship Conference for 2008 is organized around the theme, “Order and Chaos.” The Rev. Dr. Gordon Lathrop, liturgical theologian, and the Rev. Karen Ward, a leader in the emerging church movement, are keynote presenters at the conference.

Several attendees at the conference will be posting daily highlights from the event. Visit the 2008 Anglican-Lutheran National Worship Conference blog to read their posts.
