Services for Weekdays

Readings, Reflections And Prayers
By James Woodward
Out of Stock
This book provides resources for simple services for weekdays throughout the year. The services have been tried, tested and successfully used and are ideal for small, informal groups. Each service includes a short, straightforward reading taken from the Gospels or Epistles and a comment. The latter takes the form of a brief exposition which draws on ordinary experience and every day life. There are also suggestions for prayer, either there and then or privately after the service is over. Often, the theme that is highlighted each week lends itself to discussion among those present, perhaps prompted by appropriate questions about experience or preferences. This book, the first of its kind, is an excellent resource for services with a wide range of people, including young mothers, the elderly and carers.
