I have a slow-going pet project: reworking the ancient liturgies in their familiar formats, but making them 100% from Scripture: every word, every song, every response. Time permitting and God willing, I'd also like to re-do the music too, so that there is a Bach-and-Matthew liturgy, or a Handel-and-John liturgy, and so forth.
I have a theory about good Christian writings, not just the gospels and epistles but the whole corpus of Christian writings throughout the ages: that any author who truly understands God and his message will have material that automatically and instinctively covers basics of a liturgy. I suspect that a truly good and well-rounded Christian writer could have their own material selected and arranged to create a liturgy from their words, complete with invocation, confession and repentance, adoration, praise, prayers, appreciation of God's word, the sacrament, going forth into the world, blessing, and so forth. I expect you could create a liturgy of St.Augustine, a liturgy of C.S.Lewis, a liturgy of Therese of Lisieux ... and that each author would be able to fill the framework of the basics of Christian adoration of God and proclamation of Christ.
I'd like to offer one tiny installment tonight, an invitation to confession and the proclamation of forgiveness in a Liturgy of Matthew:
Invitation to confession:
P: Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners." (Matt 9:12-13)
(I haven't worked out the wording of the confession yet.)
P: "The Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. Take heart; your sins are forgiven." (Matt 9:6, 2).
