Synopses & Reviews
When a congregation goes through difficult times, worship will both reflect and influence those difficulties. Teacher and consultant Kathleen Smith explores three broad categories of difficulties congregations face--crisis, transition, and conflict--and how worship can become a communal time to process and heal. She also lifts up the wide range of liturgical resources available for congregations going through difficult times. This book is for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the ways that worship intertwines with the life and health of a congregation.
