A MASTER CLASS WITH STEVE SMITH
One of the more obvious places to find modern application of the Pauline admonition that, ‘all things be done decently and in order,’ (1 Cor. 14:39), is certainly in the role of a parish verger. For the uninitiated, these dedicated souls work to make public worship in the Anglican tradition an act of order, beauty, and focused attention on God.
In this Master Class seasoned liturgist Scott Smith, acolyte leader and verger at Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, TN and Communication and Technology Officer of the Vergers’ Guild of the Episcopal Church offers an introduction and initiation into this ancient ministry.
