About-

Liturgical Elements for Reformed Worship is a series of four liturgical resources: three consisting of liturgical elements for Years A, B, and C, and a fourth, the first such resource to support the implementation of Year D: A Quadrennial Supplement to the Revised Common Lectionary (Cascade Books). Each volume consists of a Call to Worship, Opening Prayer, Call to Confession, Prayer of Confession, and Words of Assurance, with Years A-C including additional elements (A Prayer in Preparation for Worship, The Offering, Prayer of Dedication, and a Blessing) suitable for Presbyterian, Reformed, and other Protestant worship. Each of these practical volumes is intended for use by pastors, liturgists, and other planners and leaders of worship.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Slemmons appeals to the preacher as prompter, the pastor as liturgist in his remarkable volume for Year D! Slemmons is unabashed about the essential and distinctive tenet of Reformed worship: perpetual repentance. Countering the liturgical renewal movement's embarrassment with medieval stereotypes of repentance, Slemmons lifts up the twin disciplines of self-examination and robust confession. These are the hallmarks of true reform and irrepressible joy!"
--Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner, Professor of Pastoral Care, Perkins School of Theology

"Timothy Slemmons has composed an exceptional collection of worship material for God's people as they gather for corporate worship. It is convincing in theological soundness, remarkable in scriptural paraphrase, and elegant in poetic phrasing. He creates these worship words not only as someone who has years of experience pastorally leading worship, but also as one who has prayed every line of each worship act set forth in this collection."
--Constance M. Cherry, Professor of Worship, Indiana Wesleyan University

"After twenty-five years of following the RCL, Lectionary D has been a great help to expand my preaching. However, coming to Lectionary D each week was also something of a challenge since it meant composing liturgy conversant with these rarely preached texts. Slemmons has again helped us by providing worship resources that are true to the Word and that will serve worshippers in the Reformed tradition well."
--Gregory C. Faulkner, Pastor and Head of Staff, Trinity Presbyterian Church
