At ResCov, we believe that the traditions of the ancient and diverse church are important, so we hear each week from holy scripture (often from the lectionary), celebrate weekly communion, follow the rhythms of the church year, and often use hymns, songs, and spirituals from our spiritual forebears. Yet, we also believe "tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire" (Mahler). Not only do traditions need to be brought into conversation with our present day lives, but we must also re-form and even discard liturgical traditions when they have become damaging or oppressive. Finally, because the Spirit is still working, we use diverse and contemporary liturgies, songs, and prayers that speak to our diverse and contemporary world. So, come as you are to worship our triune God and enter into the story of hope and liberation, joy and peace.
