Genuflection, Orthodox and Lutheran

Pastor Weedon has posted a nice comment on genuflecting during the Nicene Creed. Although Western Christendom is accused of diminishing the importance of the Incarnation, this traditional devotion shows a holy balance.

This post also serves as a decent reminder why many Lutherans will never convert to Roman Catholicism: they're higher church than the RCC, where genuflection is typically replaced with a bow or (more frequently) nothing at all. (More on this another time.)

I post this despite my history with quoting Lutherans. :)

Hmmm, I think we do genuflect during the Nicene Creed during the Traditional Mass.
