Preserving Tradition and Adapting to
Change in the 21st Century

How is your Congregation Adapting?
It is a time of change for our Church and a generational transition in many of our congregations. Our younger members are embracing the old traditions, but are learning about them and sharing them in new ways: social media, pictures more than text, and seeking innovative ways of gathering and worshiping as community. In this way, our Church is in the process of repurposing the old so that they may be shared anew.

Tell us your stories! Are there liturgical items in your parish that have been recently repurposed for the next generation? We would love to have your photographs and a brief summary of your story to share at our workshop on the 26th of September at Grace Cathedral.

 - St. Cyprian's, San Francisco repurposed a bicycle wheel into an Advent Wreath for their liturgical space.

 - Church of Our Saviour, Mill Valley, drawing on a modern-day potter in New Hampshire and the work of marble fabricators in San Rafael to renovate a seventy-year-old baptismal font.

Send your examples and photographs to: Please tag your submission with the word "Change" in the subject line of your email.
