The Oct. 21 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers.

In the cover story, Benjamin Guyer interviews David Lee Bozeman, founder of the rock band Luxury and an ordained priest of the Orthodox Church in America. A brief excerpt:

What drew you to the Orthodox Church?
The liturgical worship of the Church. My upbringing was in a mainline evangelical tradition, which I never had any problems with. In college, I experienced the evangelicals moving in a different direction, more toward non-creedal, non-tradition, non-order. This didn’t appeal to me so I faded out, more or less. Friends of mine began exploring Orthodoxy, and with my first exposure to the worship, I was radically interested. I felt like I had a language and a tradition for what I always believed. I think the death of Christianity in the West is mainly due to lack of proper liturgical worship, among other things.
