Why is it always basically the same?

Certainly there are great things achieved by freshly created services each day. But the goal of this type of service is formation – formation by immersion in the thoughts, ideals, values and words of the scriptures. That just cannot be achieved if you are constantly trying to figure out what you might be having to say next or if every day you have to determine anew whether or not prayers are theologically sound.

One of the goals of this type of prayer service is that you need the written liturgy (or in our case, the computer screen) less and less, until eventually you can just show up to prayer with a Bible and a thirsty soul.
