After getting over the shock of Josh going MIA, I had the chance to listen to and ask questions of one of the brightest pastors I have ever had the chance to see. Rev. Dr. Burnell F. Eckardt, a man who has had charges brought against him, but is also the editor in chief of Gottendienst. He made remarks about the book of Genesis and the liturgy were quite amazing. For instance, in Genisis 2:1-3, God creates the seventh day but there is no evening and morning like there were the other six days. The most important thing I came out with is this: Leitourgia Divina adiaphora non est (The liturgy is not an adiaphora.
I'll try to say more later, like when I can get my hands on the tape made of the talk.
