Theologically and liturgically sensitive, these resources for the church year will encourage creativity and theological integrity in worship. 
They address God in a rich variety of images from scripture and Christian experience so that worship may be more inclusive and vital.
They respect human differences in gender, race, and physical abilities, excluding no one and honoring all.
Christian concern for justice and peace ia a central theme.
Touch Holiness includes a list of alternitive lectionary reading, a Service of Thanksgiving for Christian Dying into Life, texts for sung service music, prayers of intercession, and resources for use in special times in a congregation's life.
This collection, written by more than fifty contributors from many local churches, has grown out of the worshiping lives of the congregations.

  •     This is an excellant resource for those who need to write either worship services or rituals. It is easy to follow and is user friendly. There are whole worship services for the various church seasons. There are also individual prayers, confessions, communion liturgies, etc. that can be dropped into your regular worship service. All of the lituries and prayers have a wonderful spiritual aspect without being over done. One week after purchasing the book I used it to prepare a communion worship service for a women's retreat. I was able to prepare a service that was meaningful and appropriate for the theme without spending all of my energy and time just on this task.
  •     Very nice resource
  •     The book is not what I thought it would be; so, I was a little disappointed, not with the service, but with the book.
  •     Ruth Duck is a poet. Her liturgy speaks to the heart because thats where it comes from. I prefer to write my own stuff. When I can't she is where I turn and she never dissapoints. I just wish she would put out more books like this one.
  •     good resource
  •     This is an awesome book. It was my understanding that I was buying it new. When the book arrived it was beat up and looked like it had been used for a while. If I had the time I would have returned it, unfortunately I need it this week so I'm keeping it even though I am unhappy.
  •     I have used this wonderful resource until it's falling apart. Great for local church, retreat and camp settings, and ecumenical gatherings.
  •     I prepare a once in a while worship service. This is the type of resource book I have been seeking to help me with that task.
