Product Description

Communal prayer in the Black Catholic tradition has been one of the most creative developments in the last half-century of liturgical development. This collection of prayer services from the Black Catholic church holds a few examples of how the Black Catholic community has been working on building the stones of our journey (Joshua 4:19-14), stones built on the lives of our ancestors of faith, the songs of our brothers and sisters, the dances of our most ancient kin and the sounds of the drums that guided them.

Authors Brown and Cheri composed prayer services that allow for "emotional, effective, dramatic, soulful performance in worship." The prayer services provide inspiration to evangelize and are ecumenical.

Publisher's Description

"The call to engage the laity in the prayer life of the church underlies Sweet, Sweet Spirit. The old should bless the young. The adults should offer protection to the old and the young. The very young should practice their faith in the presence of their elders. And the church should shout, 'Amen.'"
—from the Introduction

Communal prayer in the Black Catholic tradition has been one of the most creative developments in the last half-century of liturgical development. This collection of prayer services from the Black Catholic church holds a few examples of how the Black Catholic community has been working on building the stones of our journey (Joshua 4:19-14), stones built on the lives of our ancestors of faith, the songs of our brothers and sisters, the dances of our most ancient kin and the sounds of the drums that guided them.
