A lifelong Episcopalian, Milt Coleman’s involvement in being an acolyte and in the liturgy was forged early. In 1933 he sang in choir and served weekly as an acolyte at the Thursday 6:30 am service at the Church of the Savior in (where else?) Milton, MA. The list of his church participation, which fills a page itself, primarily shares the thread of bringing depth, history, beauty and variation into liturgics, the theology of worship. Among many other roles, Milt has been a graphic designer, Warden and an indispensable part of the Diocese of Central New York.
At the root of his liturgical ideas is continued study. Milt’s paper, “Liturgical Observances of Holy Week,” is based on 45 of the 300 – 350 books in his personal liturgical library. Also on Milt’s reading list are books on the Episcopal Church and Anglicanism, Biblical literature and the New Yorker magazine.
