A Message from the editor of Call to Worship:
Dear friends of Call to Worship,
For more than fifty years, Call to Worship: Liturgy, Music, Preaching, and the Arts and its precursor journals have offered insight and inspiration for pastors, church musicians, artists, and other worship leaders. Here’s what you’ll find in this year’s subscription:
49.1: Lectionary Aids, Year C (2015–2016). This third installment the three-year cycle of expanded Lectionary Aids provides full orders of worship (composed of a combination of weekly and seasonal resources) as well as music suggestions for every Sunday and festival in the Christian year, all based on the Scriptures of the Revised Common Lectionary. These materials are available in print and electronically through our website.
Three thematic issues will follow in this volume of Call to Worship, each including articles, columns, practical ideas, and reviews of new resources, as well as full-color features on liturgical arts:
49.2: Time after Epiphany. While not traditionally acknowledged as a season in the liturgical year, the time between the Baptism and Transfiguration of the Lord is marked by a distinctive set of themes—vocation, discipleship, community, being beloved. This issue of Call to Worship will provide a fresh perspective on this “unsung season” in the Christian year.
49.3: The Work of the People. Liturgy means “the work of the people.” Too often, however, the work of a liturgical leader can be a solitary endeavor. This issue of Call to Worship illustrates collaborative approaches to liturgy, music, preaching, and the arts, featuring stories from congregations.
49.4: Worship 101. What should every church leader know about preaching, the sacraments, congregational song, the order of worship, the liturgical calendar, pastoral liturgies, and more? This issue of Call to Worship invites experts in a variety of worship-related disciplines to distill and share their wisdom.
Thanks for your support of Call to Worship. May God bless your ministries of liturgy, music, preaching, and the arts.
Grace and peace,
David Gambrell, Associate for Worship and Editor, Call to Worship
