Sacramental Life: A Journal Dedicated to Emerging and Historical Practices of Christian Communities

Sacramental Life is seeking submissions for upcoming issues. Founded in 1988, Sacramental Life is one of two journals published by the Order of Saint Luke (OSL Publications). Distribution is to a number of university and seminary libraries in the United States as well as the members of the Order globally.

Articles should deal with some practice of Christian communities, especially but not limited to worship, para-liturgical practices, preaching, or the sacraments, and should be between 2000-3000 words in length. Submissions of newly written liturgical material, hymn texts, sacred art, and/or poetry, book reviews, and screen reviews are also welcome. Material first presented as a sermon is not generally accepted unless it has been rewritten in the form of an article. The themes and deadlines for upcoming issues are below:
