When Heaven Stands Open
Liturgical Elements for Reformed Worship, Year B
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Timothy Slemmons has done us all a great favor with these winsome and moving resources for every Sunday of Year B. Every prayer and response grows from his own close and reverent meditation on the varied texts of the lectionary. Whether used as is or adapted to local contexts, they will push us all to a richer life of public worship."
--Gary Neal Hansen, Associate Professor of Church History, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary
"How wonderful that God's people should have words by which to hear and respond to the living Word. Fresh, varied, rich in imagery, the liturgy offered here is also deeply familiar as it articulates truth in the relationship between God and his people. Timothy Slemmons has loosened our tongues with honest, biblical, joyful language with which to worship the Lord. Our worshiping community will be eager to find their voice in this liturgy."
--Beth McCaw, Pastor to Students, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary
"Pastors looking to shape all the elements of worship into one, integrated whole need to look no further than Slemmons's creative and utterly faithful volume. Written with beauty, yet also with an informality suitable as a guide for contemporary worship, this is a great resource for anyone approaching the relentless task and terrific privilege of planning weekly worship."
--Charles B. Hardwick, Director of Theology, Worship, and Education, Presbyterian Church (USA)
