For those who have not listened to The Sacramentalists podcast, here is a talk I gave a while back on days of obligation within an Anglican viewpoint. I have also added my powerpoint to help follow along.
In the lecture, I talk about topics of feasting, liturgy, and time in order to lay the foundation for considering the topic of obligation. While obligation was just assumed in the past, churches today need a richer context in order for the idea of obligation not to be brushed off. I hope that this discussion will bring more ideas and thoughts to light. Let me know what you think!
