Rituals can fuel the imaginations and lives of people who feel compelled to change the world.
Wedgewood adapts some of the historic rituals of the church and has created some new rituals, not for the sake of creativity or to meet the worship and ritual preferences of Wedgewoodians, but rather to help us be who God needs us to be and who the world needs us to be.
Rituals do not have to be boring. And rituals do not have to be done the same way every time.
Rituals can be an important part of empowerment, healing, discernment, and the formation of a prophetic community. Rituals also are an opportunity for us to enact the kingdom of God in worship and prepare us not only to pray thy kingdom come on earth but actually contribute to the building of that kingdom.
Wedgewood regularly practices the following rituals:
CALL TO WORSHIP WITH GONG/TIBETAN TINGSHA BELLS/TIBETAN SINGING BOWL, SHOFAR
Wedgwood blesses everybody, every thing, and particularly enjoys blessing pets. The power of blessing cannot be underestimated. Some people never get the blessings they so desperately want. And, the journey can be a rocky one. It's nice knowing there is a faith community cheering you on and wishing you the best.
