eBookThe Worship Hour eBook • $8.99
People of faith and people seeking faith assemble for worship during the same hour with different needs and expectations, dreams and hopes. Some want to recover a sense of purpose; others seek rituals of support and reassurance; still others listen for words of comfort and hope. In The Worship Hour, Daniel Bagby offers helpful tools for ministers and laypeople as they lead their congregants each week. This collection of meditations, litanies, and prayers will help believers connect—or reconnect—with a source of meaning and peace in their daily lives.
This book is an invaluable gift to ministers and laypeople who follow the Revised Common Lectionary. Dan Bagby brings the mind of an academician with the heart of a pastor, and what emerges are insights that will enrich all who read and use this book. I know Dan as a friend and a former faculty colleague. He speaks to where we live.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think that Dan Bagby wrote The Worship Hour just for me. As a pastor, I love to utilize my own creativity in crafting language for corporate worship experiences, but quite often that well runs dry. Drawing on decades of experience as a pastor and professor, Bagby provides his readers with generously thoughtful meditations, prayers, litanies, sermon prompts, and more. So valuable is this collection that it will not reside on my bookshelf, but rather on the edge of my desk.
