Misc. Comments

The purpose of The Purple Liturgy is to authentically express the joys and sorrows of our daily lives and celebrate the healing response of a Community in Christ.

Indeed, purple can be the color of cancer survivors, veterans anyone who has encountered the color of injury -- emotional or physical.

It is, however, also the color of resilience in the form of the Passion of Christ -- the hope and promise of the healing love and forgiveness delivered by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His People.

Rev. Harvard Stephens, Jr. is known for his thoughtful and dynamic work throughout the Lutheran community in North America. A former campus pastor at Carthage College and Howard University, Rev. Stephens has also served parishes in Baltimore, Maryland; Columbus, Ohio; and the U.S. Virgin Islands. He is a highly regarded preacher and writer who embraces the challenges of intergenerational and multicultural ministry.
