i have a list of things i mean to blog about and the list stays there for a long time. i added this communion prayer from andrea on to that list ages ago and am finally making it a worship trick - that must be no 41 in series 4 - my body broken for you. she explains...
much of the liturgy and practice of the church actually re-enforces shame and that it has been used as an effective means of control by religious hierarchies.

Well here is my attempt!
i am a big fan of writing of liturgy to articulate local theology and wish more people would do it.
