Originally published in 1987 as Worship Vessels, this book is an expanded version of the original with fresh examples of liturgical pieces to aid pastors and worship planning committees. This resource's liturgies deal with Sundays in the regular church year and cover many different parts of the worship service. The author has taken special care to be sensitive to the issues of inclusive language, but the liturgies are adaptable to suit all users' needs.

Each chapter opens with a discussion of how that particular part of the liturgy (i.e., "Gathering Act") developed over time. These discussions will enable lay leaders to assist in the design of their church's worship services.

Contents include: Word & Sacrament; Gathering; Penitence; Word; Offertory; Eucharist; Sending; and The Bulletins of Common Prayer.

This book has an accompanying CD-ROM containing numerous resources as well as music, and can be downloaded for inclusion in your church's bulletin.

F. RUSSELL MITMAN is the conference minister for the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference of the United Church of Christ. He is the author of Worship in the Shape of Scripture (The Pilgrim Press, 2001). Mitman is a trustee of Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
