Item Description...
Overview
The word "liturgy" literally means "the work of the people" -- so the active participation of everyone in the congregation should be the goal of Christian worship. Designed to help you attain that sense of full partnership, The Work Of The People provides you with a full year's worth of eloquent resources for thoughtful, reverent services. It's a comprehensive collection of liturgical prayers and readings for 52 Sundays, with each week's material based on a common subject (Freedom, Hospitality, Peace, and Stewardship are just a few examples). Written in everyday language that connects them to our daily lives, the prayers are conceived for congregational reading (either responsively or in unison) -- and their thematic unity will lead to reflection and insight in addition to praise and celebration. The components for each week include: * call to worship * invocation * call to confession * prayer of confession * words of assurance * Psalm reading * offering sentences * prayer of dedication * benediction * scripture references (as possible texts for homilies based on the theme)

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Work of the People  Oct 17, 2006
Starting with Advent, "The Work of the People" provides wonderful theme-based liturgical resources for the Christian year. The prayers and responses are geared so that the gathered community will be participants, not just observers, in worship. The words are rich, creative, inclusive, and proclaiming the love of God. The Table of Contents allows for easy identification of worship themes, and the scripture references are a great tool for matching texts to worship resources. This is a very helpful resource for those who plan and lead worship.
