Liturgical Parish Life Resource CD
Back in 2006 I began holding the Liturgical Parish Life Conference for seminarians. I give my defense of traditional Lutheran worship and piety, we talk about the rubrics of the Divine Service, what happens in your first year or two of ministry, etc. I also put together a CD full of every document that I found helpful in my first few years of ministry for these guys so that they would not have to be constantly reinventing the wheel.
This grew out of how I survived my first few years. I would encounter a new problem - what to do for premarital counseling? how to talk to the elders about weekly communion? etc. - email all the pastors I knew whom I thought might be able to help, then edit what they sent me for my situation. Why should these seminarians, I thought, have to repeat that process? So I dumped everything on a CD and gave a copy to everyone who registered for the Conference. I've been adding and substituting stuff as I find it useful every since.
As time went on and seminarians graduated, word got out about the CD and other parish pastors have asked for it.
At long last, I'm getting around to offering it in an orderly way. There is a PayPal Buy Now button at the right. The cost for the CD shipped to you is $5 - enough to cover my production, packaging, shipping, and PayPal fees. Now available as a free download.
These two screen shots show you all the folders and sub-folders that are included, which will give you an idea of the files that are in them. Everything is in either .doc or .pdf format and in the public domain. I hope it can be useful to you.
