WELCOME to the blog for THE BRIDE OF CHRIST: The Journal of Lutheran Liturgical Renewal (BOC). This is a resurrection of the BOC Journal website which is dedicated to the publication of "The Bride of Christ" and Lutheran Liturgical Renewal. With the resurrection of this site it is our hope that THE BRIDE OF CHRIST will once again see publication, either as a published quarterly journal, or in a digital version, or both. To this end we are re-constructing the website and are offering a companion blog for the purpose of discussing issues related to the journal and Lutheran Liturgical Renewal. Miscellaneous articles, essays, etc. from past issues will be made available on the blog from time to time. We invite you to join us in the discussion and share your ideas and suggestions.

1. Providing a digital version of the journal.
2. Use of the journal as a print forum in connection to the annual St. Michael Liturgical Conference.
3. Call for papers - articles, papers, book reviews.
4. Additional suggestions.

Thank you for visiting the blog. We hope to hear from you.

In Christ,

I am very glad to receive this news. When I received the final issue of Bride of Christ, I was saddened to find that they were ending the fine periodical.

I would like to help out in this endeavor. Just let me know how I can be a part of this.

I really appreciated the article by one of the long-standing editors, I think Aubrey Bougher, where he encouraged the younger theologians to take up the task of Lutheran Liturgical Renewal. While reading the article, I felt as though I was one of those guys that needed to participate in this resurrection.

Let me know how to help! This is great news, indeed.

Fr. Chadius,

Thank you for this response and welcome. With a little work The Bride of Christ will once again see publication. Glad to have you on board.

And we're back! And I have ideas for publications (but I guess I better or else I'd be a worthless director.)

Great to see Bride of Christ making a come back! Congratulations, my hat's off to you, and my prayers are with you as well. I look forward to reading more on the Church's liturgy, and who knows, I may even throw in a couple of cents here and there. :-)
