WE ARE IN NEED OF original liturgies, prayers, responsive readings, rituals, ceremonies, etc., for a new project, LEAD US INTO TRANSGRESSION: A SUBVERSIVE BREVIARY.  The contributions should be politically, theologically, sexually, racially, subversive, transgressive, or counter-cultural; and should be within the Christian or liberal religious tradition, broadly speaking.  Entries that are religiously hybridic or transtraditional will also be considered.

Contributions may be from a variety of liturgical settings, seasons, or situations.  We are particularly interested in new settings or ceremonies for sacramental use, such as non-heteronormative marriage, baptism, Eucharist, and funerals; as well as items for high liturgical dates (Christmas, Easter, Transfiguration); pastoral or intercessory prayers; and prayers related to everyday life.

Please indicate clearly what the intended context is unless it is obvious in the title.  Citations must be provided.  Multiple submissions are welcomed.  With submissions, offer a 1-2 sentence biography of the author or author(s).

The first round of submissions will have a deadline of November 1, 2015.
