A Guide to Sustaining Communal Worship New and Expanded
Providing for and sustaining meaningful communal worship is at the core of a congregations responsibilities to its members. Union member congregations differ in their worship styles, reflecting the uniqueness of their communities. The process outlined in the Ivdu Bsimchah: Worship with Joy materials is not meant to change that. Rather, it is intended to support and guide your congregation through communal study about, reflection on and experimentation with worship. Our hope is that through such a process, you will discover how you can better define and fulfill your own aspirations for communal worship.
