A book of resources for contemporary worship services. Written by men and women from various faith communities, these resources emphasize worship as part of an ever-evolving journey toward God. Among the resources included are baptism and communion liturgies, an order for confirmation, a litany for the reception of new members, and a funeral service. Worship suggestions for the various seasons of the Christian Year are also provided. While employing inclusive language, the book avoids both slang and overly formal, archaic usages.
