Liturgical Elements for Reformed Worship is a series of four liturgical resources: three consisting of liturgical elements for Years A, B, and C of the Revised Common Lectionary, and a fourth, the first such resource to support the implementation of Year D: A Quadrennial Supplement to the Revised Common Lectionary (Cascade Books). Each volume consists of a Call to Worship, Opening Prayer, Call to Confession, Prayer of Confession, and Declaration of Forgiveness, with Years A-C including additional elements (A Prayer in Preparation for Worship, The Offering, Prayer of Dedication, and a Blessing) suitable for Presbyterian, Reformed, and other Protestant worship. Each of these practical volumes is intended for use by pastors, liturgists, and other planners and leaders of worship. ""Timothy Slemmons has done us all a great favor with these winsome and moving resources for every Sunday of Year B. Every prayer and response grows from his own close and reverent meditation on the varied texts of the lectionary. Whether used as is or adapted to local contexts, they will push us all to a richer life of public worship."" --Gary Neal Hansen, Associate Professor of Church History, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary ""How wonderful that God's people should have words by which to hear and respond to the living Word. Fresh, varied, rich in imagery, the liturgy offered here is also deeply familiar as it articulates truth in the relationship between God and his people. Timothy Slemmons has loosened our tongues with honest, biblical, joyful language with which to worship the Lord. Our worshiping community will be eager to find their voice in this liturgy."" --Beth McCaw, Pastor to Students, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary ""Pastors looking to shape all the elements of worship into one, integrated whole need to look no further than Slemmons's creative and utterly faithful volume. Written with beauty, yet also with an informality suitable as a guide for contemporary worship, this is a great resource for anyone approaching the relentless task and terrific privilege of planning weekly worship."" --Charles B. Hardwick, Director of Theology, Worship, and Education, Presbyterian Church (USA) Timothy Matthew Slemmons is Assistant Professor of Homiletics and Worship at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary. He is author of Groans of the Spirit: Homiletical Dialectics in an Age of Confusion (2010).
