    A Series on Creation

    Here are eight worship services on the theme of creation. The general idea for the worship services was originally inspired by a seminar with Tim Brown on his book The Seven Pillars of Creation, although the worship services developed in a somewhat different direction than the book.

    For each service, you are encouraged to adapt the prayers of the people to fit the needs of your congregation.

    Here’s a summary of the themes and Scripture passages for each of the eight services.

  • A Strange Community

    Telling the Good Friday Story

    This service is designed for use on Good Friday, but it would also be appropriate for use throughout the Lenten season. As it stands, the service runs about forty minutes, although it could be lengthened by the addition of extra anthems. We used one reader for the Scripture lessons and different readers for each of the reflections, although it could also be done the other way around. Scripture readings were taken from The Message.
