Intended mainly for worship leaders and pastors but also for those in the pews who care about the quality of worship, Reinventing Sunday explores the purposes and possibilities of the worship experience in ways that inspire people to make worship at their church all that it can be. Author Brad Berglund discusses each element of the worship service in the context of his high vision for worship. He discusses gathering and greeting, praising and singing, praying, scripture reading, preaching, listening, communion, giving and more. Each step of the way, the author offers practical suggestions designed to enable churches to improve their worship experience in terms of quality, creativity and the meaning they draw from it.
