Published annually under the auspices of Ekklesia, Word and Worship is an ecumenical resource for worship and preaching based on the three-year cycle of texts from the internationally recognised Revised Common Lectionary. Now in its 10th edition, it is the fruit of a collaborative venture of clergy from a number of denominations. For each Sunday of the particular Christian Year the publication offers liturgical suggestions and also preaching resources that include exegesis and hermeneutical exposition of the texts for the day. Ideas and suggestions are offered that can be further developed and adapted by preachers for sermons. For ministers with limited access to a theological library the material is user-friendly. Provision is also made for various important Christian feast days and special observances unique to South Africa, such as Youth Day and Freedom Day among others.
The current addition is available in e-copies and hard copies.
