  • Purpose Pattern And Character Of Worship

    $39.99

    Within the broad range of Christianity we find diverse understandings of what makes for good worship. This book develops a typology of Christian worship to provide a method of assessing the decisions of congregations and leaders in forming and changing the orders of their worship.

    Among contemporary western Protestants, we find at least six discrete characteristics of worship:
    -the Revival,
    -the Sunday School,
    -the Aesthetic Revival,
    -the Pentecostal/holiness movement,
    -the Prayer Meeting,
    -and the twentieth-century Catholic Liturgical Renewal.

    These patterns find contemporary expression as:
    -Seeker Worship,
    -Creative Worship,
    -Traditional Worship,
    -Praise Worship,
    -House Church Worship,
    -and Word and Table Worship.

    Absent an overall authority for the structure of worship (such as the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer), many Protestant congregations have developed a conflation of patterns, which often creates incoherent worship. This book helps leaders define the purpose, character, and pattern of their community’s worship. Continue Reading Purpose Pattern And Character Of Worship

  • God Made Me For Worship

    $15.99

    God Made Me for Worship (a part of the God Made Me series) by Jared Kennedy helps children understand the complexity of a Christian worship gathering by using the vision of Isaiah 6. This beautifully illustrated children’s book celebrates how God reveals himself to his people in the movements of worship.

    Sitting in a worship service for any young child can be a difficult experience. One minute everyone is singing loudly, the next everyone is sitting and listening quietly (without talking!). Sometimes the adults know something that should be said out loud, like, Thanks be to God! How did they know what to say? How do people know when to talk to one another and shake hands?

    God Made Me for Worship focuses on teaching kids about the key liturgical movements in a worship gathering, including the call to worship, praise and adoration, confession, assurance and passing the peace, ministry of the Word and sacraments, and benediction and sending.

    Kennedy guides parents to help their kids understand why we’re intentional about worship, encouraging them to engage–not just to manage behavior during a worship gathering, but to invite kids to respond to God along with the whole church body. Continue Reading God Made Me For Worship

  • Liturgies From Below

    $29.99

    This book offers a wealth of resources from forgotten places to help us create a new vocabulary for worship and prayer. It is a collection of prayers, songs, rituals, rites of healing, Eucharistic and baptismal prayers, meditations, and art from four continents: Asia-Pacific Islands, Africa, Americas, and Europe.

    Liturgies from Below is the culmination of a project organized by the Council for World Mission (CWM) during 2018-2019. Approximately 100 people from four continents worked with CWM, collaborating to create indigenous prayers and liturgies expressing their own contexts, for sharing with their communities and the rest of the world. The project was called Re-Imagining Worship as Acts of Defiance and Alternatives in the Context of Empire. The author and others spent weeks living in each of four communities for several weeks/months, getting to know the people, and then facilitating the people’s own creation of prayers and liturgies. The author, other scholars, pastors, artists, activists, and students all came from radically different ethnicities, races, sexualities, churches, and Christian theologies. The people in each location were poor, living in very challenging communities, living in oppressive and seemingly hopeless situations. After some time, they wrote prayers and stories of their experience trying to live the Christian faith in utterly abandoned places. What we have here is an immensely rich and varied collection of liturgical sources from various communities dealing with issues of violence, immigration, drugs, land grabbing, war, misogyny, militarization, and climate change.

  • Worshp And The World To Come

    $35.00

    Christians sing because we are people of hope. Yet our hope is unlike other kinds of hope. We are not optimists; nor are we escapists. Christian hope is uniquely shaped by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and by the promise of our own future resurrection. How is that hope both expressed and experienced in contemporary worship? In this volume in the Dynamics of Christian Worship series, pastor, theologian, and songwriter Glenn Packiam explores what Christians sing about when they sing about hope and what kind of hope they experience when they worship together. Through his analysis and reflection, we find that Christian worship is crucial to both the proclamation and the formation of Christian hope. Continue Reading Worshp And The World To Come

  • Does God Care How We Worship

    $12.99

    Does God care how we worship? For thousands of years, believers have answered with a resounding yes! Ever since the days of Cain and Abel, God has emphasized right worship, and it’s clear that careless worship can have serious consequences.

    Worship consciously regulated by God’s Word is a distinct characteristic of the Reformed church. Yet today many churches do not understand that both the Old and New Testaments have much to say about appropriate worship before God. Ligon Duncan lays the foundations of the regulative principle in worship, providing full biblical support as well as historical context. He also answers objections: Is this right worship essentially European? Is it flexible to different churches and contexts? Is it really still applicable today?

  • Flow : The Ancient Way To Do Contemporary Worship

    $19.99

    Is there a way to do the prescribed or suggested orders of worship from denominational worship resources–such as the United Methodist Book of Worship, Evangelical Lutheran Book of Worship, the Book of Common Worship of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), or the Book of Common Prayer–in a way that feels legitimately and authentically contemporary?

    This practical, how-to book will help churches plan and implement passionate and invigorating worship. Step by step, Flow will break down the process of re-thinking what the official or recommended order of worship is truly suggesting, so pastors and worship leaders can plan and lead a service of Word and Table that feels genuinely relevant and attuned to the congregation’s culture. With this goal, Flow casts a new, but classic, understanding of traditional worship as well as spurs a reconsideration of how contemporary worship can be done by honoring the traditions of denominational congregations.

  • Worship Without Limits

    Worship is a priceless gift.
