Pastors and others who lead Christian worship want to offer worship that is truthful and hopeful. They yearn to create worship that involves and includes everyone in their midst. To develop new approaches to planning, so that their worship can reflect and respond to the realities of the community. To create worship for the church that is becoming.
A Worship Workbook introduces crucial and under-examined liturgical and social concepts for students and leaders of worship. Each chapter offers a brief lesson, teaching new skills and inspiring creativity for honest, faithful, and versatile worship leadership.
It is common for pastors, like you, to share the cultural context behind Scripture in your Sunday morning sermons. Doing so enables the congregation to better digest the message in the Scripture, but there are cultural differences in the Bible that are, quite honestly, disturbing and hard for today’s readers to discuss. A Worship Workbookdifferentiates itself from other worship resources by swiftly and surgically underscoring the ways in which liturgical practices have led to oppression and transgressions in the past. Its practical ideas for responding to cultural differences and correcting past wrongs will inspire you to widen the reach and accessibility of liturgy and social awareness, resulting in a gathering of diverse people in an expression of faithfulness in God.
