One of a series of endowed Chalmers Lectures delivered in May 2010, this published lecture offers a condensed reading of different eras of liturgical development in Scotland, suggesting a schema of reform, reduction and retrieval/revival which opens out in the later 20th century to an era of diversity which begs the question of whether a 'common order' still exists. Looking to the future, the article discerns a number of key trends in current worship practice and identifies those seen as likely to be definitive for future worship practice.
