Worshipping Ecumenically: Orders of Service from Global Meetings with Suggestions for Local Use

Spiral bound
A handbook of annotated orders of worship from major international ecumenical events, which can be effectively adapted for use in local settings. A comprehensive introduction offers a brief history of ecumenical worship, suggestions about how to use music from various regions and cultures, and comments on worship space, worship leadership and the use of symbolism and symbolic elements in worship. Time and again people attending a World Council of Churches Assembly or a similar global ecumenical gathering testify that their most striking experience is taking part in worship that draws from the full range of ancient and contemporary Christian traditions around the world.
