Readings: “How To Write Your Own Litanies

Also appropriate as Litanies

This is a particular kind of liturgical responsive reading, in which the congregation’s response is the same in each instance, even though the lines spoken by the reader change. It is usually tied together thematically, that is the response sets the theme/tone of the litany and each of the changing lines links back to it. (It goes without saying, perhaps, that the litany can reflect the theme of the service as a whole.)
