The Greening of the Liturgy: The Cosmic Liturgy in Eucharistic Prayer

Author: 
Stewart Todd

In an updated version of a 1988 lecture to the Society for Liturgical Study Stewart Todd draws attention to the minimal place accorded to creation themes in the Eucharistic services authorised in the Church of Scotland, paralleled in the Church of England, and, noting the larger place accorded to them in much early liturgy, suggests that we owe it to contemporary ‘prophet ecologists’ to fill out doxologically their understanding of nature in the purposes of God.
