Preparing worship services for each Sunday can be very challenging -- especially capturing just the right balance between reverence for God and relevance to our everyday lives. In Cradled in God's Heart, the newest edition of CSS' Lectionary Worship Aids series, Thom Shuman provides a wide range of responsive and pastoral prayers that's sure to help busy pastors and worship planners strike the perfect chord in developing their own services. Shuman's poetic prayers are filled with vivid imagery that reminds us of God's all-encompassing love and forgiveness, and his penetrating sensibility helps link the holy with the mundane realities of modern existence. With a complete set of thematically unified worship material keyed to each week's lectionary texts, this is a resource that will be used again and again throughout the year to create truly inspiring worship experiences.
