Dianne Zaerr Brenneman has assembled a dynamic collection of prayers, litanies, and other elements for worship throughout the church year. Contributors use fresh language and vivid images and give congregations the words to help give voice to their worship. Several extensive indices make quick work of finding pieces to fit a theme. An additional section features elements for morning and evening prayers, praying in public places, and for special times within regular worship, such as blessings, and dedications, commissioning, and laments. Sample services not often provided in other resources include the Longest Night, Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Labor Day, and All Saints' Day. Lay worship leaders and pastors will find this volume invaluable for planning vibrant worship services.
