Feasting on the Word Worship Companion

(Kimberly Bracken Long). Westminster John Knox Press, 2012.

The Worship Companion is a six-volume set of liturgical resources based on the Revised Common Lectionary. There are two volumes for each lectionary year. Written by an ecumenical team of teachers and liturgical practitioners, this series offers prayers and litanies for all parts of worship, from the “Call to Worship” to the” Charge” and “Blessing”. There are also weekly devotional resources that can be added to the worship bulletin for use at home. These include a question for reflection and morning and evening prayers. Additional resources feature Eucharistic prayers for each season and cycle year. For example, Volumes 1, 3 and 5 cover the first half of the liturgical year, and offer Eucharistic prayers for Advent through Pentecost. Each volume in the set comes with a CD-ROM of all the content for ease in reproduction. This resource is for worship planners who use the Revised Common Lectionary.
