Liturgical Formation – James K.A. Smith
A great post from Anglican TV on Lex orandi, lex credendi — “the rule of praying is the rule of believing.” This phrase, attributed to fifth-century theologian Prosper of Aquitaine, points to the intimate relationship between Christian worship and Christian belief. While Christian belief informs the character of Christian worship, Christian worship profoundly shapes Christian faith. Worship shapes not only the substance of our faith, but also the ways in which we inhabit and live out that faith. This forming and informing power of Christian worship is often referred to as liturgical formation.
