Description of Work This seminar held discussions around the theme of “Encountering One Another’s Located Liturgical Spiritualities: What Brings Life?” Recognizing that both liturgy and spirituality are contextual, socially-located constructs, we explored how we can best articulate our own liturgical spiritualities even as we seek to engage one another’s spiritualities through intercultural encounters. Throughout our discussions we sought to ask: What is life-giving? What gifts might we offer to and receive from one another? This year, the Liturgy and Spirituality seminar invited three other seminars to join us in three different joint sessions. We met in consecutive joint sessions with Emerging Critical Resources for Liturgical Studies Seminar, Ecology and Liturgy Seminar, and Feminist Studies in Liturgy Seminar.
