A further collection of prayers and liturgies from one of the foremost writers of contemporary liturgy. This collection includes a series of four services for Advent, and liturgies for celebration, grieving, reflection and preparation. The liturgies have a focus on ceremonies and celebrations for key moments in personal development and often make use of powerfully simple ritual actions. Written from a free church perspective, these liturgies can be used by worship leaders of any Church background.
