Shape of Liturgy

I first came to Canterbury while studying art in graduate school.  A fellow artist attended Canterbury and brought it to my attention. Since it has been a community allowing for a wide range of diversity, I have continued in the fellowship. The sermons have proved beneficial in opening my heart/mind to that which might not otherwise be considered and a study group helped make contemplative prayer/meditation a lifelong practice. Participating in the liturgy reminds me that I am not the one in control and to be receptive to that higher power/ Holy Spirit to guide both my art and life. Every other week I set up the altar for the early Sunday service, which helps me through times one might call the dark night of the soul.
