Nothing challenges our distorted sense of individualism like a sober-minded, Christian reflection of the faithful departed. The Saints are not mini gods out to do our bidding, nor are they silent on the other side of heaven. They pray for us as the ‘great cloud of witnesses’ and cheer us on. The church is not the bricks and stones of our meeting places, but the living stones of apostles, prophets and martyrs and all of those faithful in Christ who have preceded us in eternity!

I am looking for some ancient, liturgical, non-protestant worship ideas for evangelical youth to experience. Basically what I am trying to do is give my students a wider base of what worship is than simply contemporary worship songs.
Time tested sacraments?
