Worship Helps

Including Gathering Prayer, Collect, Pastoral Prayer, Congregational Prayer, Responsive Reading, and a Closing Prayer or Benediction.

IdeasThis section will briefly outline and describe ideas for unique sermon series based on lectionary readings.

"As a weekly preacher, I often find that preparing for preaching and crafting sermons are spiritual disciplines for me. It is a time in which I try to quiet all of the other 'to do' lists that occupy much of my ministry. This resource from Abingdon Press will now be a partner in those conversations, almost like a new personal devotional guide. I am grateful for additional voices who can help me make space for God's Living Word." - Shannon J Kershner, Pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago, IL

"The Abingdon Preaching Annual is a valuable resource for today's preacher seeking to offer sermons with theological depth and thematic clarity. It seeks to activate the preacher's own reflection and imagination in the challenging task of weekly preaching." - Alyce M. McKenzie, Le Van Professor of Preaching and Worship Director, The Perkins Center for Preaching Excellence

Wondering if this is tied or related to either Common Worship or RCL Lectionary readings, or whether it runs the calendar year from January to December 2017 with its own themes. Please could you tell me how the book is organised? Thank you for your help.

A:Thank you for your enquiry. I have taken a look into this and can only offer up my best guess that this Preaching Annual is structured to fit a calendrical year, rather than a Liturgical year, and is comprised of it's own themes. This due to it's emphasis on being a '2017' annual and the absence of any mention of Common Worship or RCL in the available information; information which would be key selling point and pertinent for such a product. I hope I have been of help to you today. Thank you for using the Q&A Forum. .
