Waiting to Go
Authors Rev. Dr. Linda H. Hollies and Dr. James Abbington have created an indispensable guide to Sunday worship preparation from Advent through Pentecost with Waiting to Go, calling congregations to celebrate the cycle of the Christian year and follow the suggested Scripture readings of the Revised Common Lectionary. For each Sunday and other holy days, Scripture references are given along with suggested altar and banner colors, prayers, a short focus essay with sermon ideas, suggestions for visual art, and more. Based on seven major African American worship hymnals, suggestions of appropriate hymns, as well as anthems, spirituals, gospel songs, and organ music are given for each service. Sure to complement the traditions of all types of congregations, Waiting to Go! is an excellent reference for all who lead African American Christian worship today!
