For puzzled newcomers to the Episcopal Church-and even for long-time members sitting in the pews-this book offers a step-by-step introduction to the Sunday liturgy, with an emphasis on how lay people can participate. Welcome to Sunday focuses on the ways that liturgy nourishes individuals and communities in their Christian life, and helps readers discover the deeper meaning within the service. Study questions accompany each chapter, making the book an ideal resource for confirmation classes and adult inquiry groups.
The perfect book for newcomers who are often confused by the worship service, Welcome to Sunday is also an excellent book for those who have been sitting in the pews without fully understanding what happens on Sunday morning.
Episcopal priest Christopher Webber takes the reader from the sidewalk outside the church, guides them through the service, and sends them out again when the service has ended. Webber explains the postures, the Christian year, the colors we use during various seasons, and all the elements in the Service of the Eucharist.
As in Webber's very popular Welcome to the Episcopal Church, the tone of the easy-to-read book is conversational, making it useful for parish study.
