And it is our task, since we have been given the grace to appreciate the value of this heritage, to preserve it from spoliation, from becoming buried out of sight, despised and therefore lost forever. Godly church leaders help church members by keeping watch over their souls Changing the World Christ gave his followers a "royal freedom" so they might overcome the reign of sin in themselves. A new form of Liturgical Movement will come into being, led by young priests and attracting mainly young people, in protest against the flat, prosaic, philistine or delirious liturgies which will soon overgrow and finally smother even the recently revised rites. They will be leading us by their example and helping us to get back up when we fall.

Given the option of continuing a costly and destructive fight over irreconcilable differences, the WCA prefers the path of freeing and blessing United Methodists to pursue the creation of new churches that conform to their firm theological and ethical convictions.

If people get upset at one church, or if the leaders there try to confront some sin in their lives, they just move down the road to another church that welcomes them. For that reason, the true celebration of the Sacred Liturgy is the centre of any renewal of the Church whatever.

Keeping this fact constantly in mind prevents any abuse of authority or any taking advantage of people for personal gain. Will you do all in your power to be responsible to the task for which you have been chosen? We do our best to keep watch over the flock, but often we are not even aware when someone is in need. But after this period of transition all the faithful should get used to the new form. Many import American business principles into the local church, without much regard for what the Bible says about the requirements and responsibilities of church leadership. We are each called to spread the Gospel through both word and deed to friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and even the strangers we may meet in our daily lives.

Task for the laity book

Will the WCA share the portions of the document its council is still reviewing and editing? After the death of the first generation, then, a second census is taken chap. Do you this day acknowledge yourself a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ? This ministry is a blessing and a serious responsibility.

There is pain in both the priesthood and the laity at present. Theirs was an uphill battle, certainly, but their convictions were clear, and their livelihoods—unlike those of the clergy—did not depend on uncritical obedience to ecclesiastical authority.

When the world's institutions and conditions are an inducement to sin, the laity should "unite their forces" to change them, and impregnate human works with a moral value.

It is our duty to keep it alive: by our own loving attachment, by our support for the priests who make it shine in our churches, by our apostolate at all levels of persuasion.

Liturgy and Laity

When we sin and we all do! Everything that we do as a church should be done through prayer and faith! Far from thinking of it as finished product, the WCA welcomes comments and anticipates further refinements of it. Guide them in their work. If priests truly love their flock, then they will boldly and with great fortitude call us to the high demands of Christian discipleship.

I shall never, pray God, apostatize but church-going is now a bitter trial. Whenever you get several hundred people together, especially when the group consists of those from different backgrounds, ages, and even nationalities, you have a huge potential for conflict. But after this period of transition all the faithful should get used to the new form.
