Item description for Lectionary Worship Workbook, Series II, Cycle B by Wayne H. Keller...
Overview "The most impressive thing about Wayne Keller's body of ideas for worship throughout the Christian Year is his boldness. He is bold in demanding that we, his colleagues in liturgical leadership, plan worship which has to do with the reality of our congregations' experience in the world, rather than just leading people through a proper agenda of acts and words which have no bearing on what we do the rest of the week. He is bold in challenging us to bring that real world -- with its pains and its pleasures, its hungers and its feasts, its beauty and its ugliness -- to exposure before the living God. And he is bold in helping us shine the strong, exposing light of the transforming Word on our real lives and on that real world, so that we may move beyond planning worship as a 'nice,' safe, feel-good routine from which we depart the same people we were when we arrived. We are thrilled by the seriousness and authentic reverence with which this author approaches the planning of worship. Thank God for Wayne Keller and for his deep respect for the central act of the Christian community: the blessed and life-transforming experience of the worship of God." Richard Avery and Donald Marsh Port Jervis, New York "[Wayne Keller's] method creates not only a contemporary appeal, but effects a congregational involvement so necessary today within the liturgical context. His grasp of materials -- scripture, hymnody, sacred music, etc. -- makes this volume tributary to the demands of parish programs of today. His approach is fresh and practical and yet a reflection consistently of a solid liturgical and homiletical background." Donald Macleod Professor Emeritus Princeton Theological Seminary "Having reviewed Wayne Keller's previous work, it was a joy to receive his latest efforts in providing fresh, innovative resources for making Sunday worship services events which incorporate worshipers as participants and not only as spectators. At a time when much worship is moribund, Keller's suggestions come through as a fresh breeze. I commend him for daring to be different." Richard J. Oman Vice President for Academic Affairs & Dean of the Faculty Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. "The good humor of Wayne Keller's work helps us feel at home in our imperfect world and feel more empathy for the rough edges of others and ourselves. Wayne's work encourages hope and faith with the way we are." Doug Adams Professor of Christianity and the Arts Pacific School of Religion an
Publishers Description Keller says, "I have seen people bored to death in worship, seemingly because they come to worship as spectators, not as participants. For me no spectators are allowed Soren Kierkegaard's analogy of worship as drama has guided my thinking and planning".
