January 28 First things: What is the Liturgy? And Preparing to Enter God’s Presence

This week we will look at the basics of liturgy and the first part of the Divine Service: the Service of Preparation which includes the Invocation as well as Confession and Absolution.

February 4 The Service of the Word part 1: Preparing to Hear from God

This week we will look at the first part of the Service of the Word. This will focus on the dialogue between us and God as we enter into His presence and bring our first prayers to God.

February 11 The Service of the Word part 2: God Speaks to Us and We Respond

This week we look at the climax of the Service of the Word, namely God’s speaking to us in the Scripture readings and sermon, as well as then how we respond to God’s Word in prayer and with our offerings.

February 18 The Service of the Sacrament: God Feeds Us and Sends Us Forth

This week we will look at the liturgy of Holy Communion as well as the benediction.

A graduate school's vocation - as it is for any university - is carried out on a triangular basis, with each point supporting and sustaining the others:
