PRAYERS FOR LIFE’S PARTICULAR MOMENTS (BK)
An excellent resource for congregational and personal use on a wide range of themes
Our lives are punctuated by special situations, life-changing events, and particular moments of significance. As we travel on the journey of life we find cause to celebrate, to stop or reflect. Sometimes we need help and support, sometimes we struggle, or are alone, and sometimes we join with a community.
This is an excellent resource for congregational and personal use on a wide range of themes such as coming of age, Transfiguration, the gathering of grief, the world, sacred space & uprooted people. The liturgies are written for different situations and different people. They provide suggestions for a ritual marking of those particular moments of our lives. ‘Liturgy has a life of its own if we will set it free among the people as they walk their way on the journey of life. When it comes in spirit and in truth it will be owned and recognised and used for the enhancing of life.’ This is a deeply creative & sensitive selection.
