Release Date: March 01, 2011
What happens when two bishops known for their liturgical sensibilities travel to study alternative Christian communities on two continents? Bishops Mary Gray-Reeves and Michael Perham traveled throughout the U.S. and U.K. to study fresh expressions of church and identify the principles that link these new forms of worship and community. The Hospitality of God captures their practical and inspiring findings and builds a bridge between fresh new voices and the institutional church. A detailed and systematic analysis that features case studies and examines such issues as history, method, setting, scripture, prayer, music and Eucharist. Also includes liturgical texts the authors encountered on the road or created in response to their journey into emergence.
