Liberated by God’s Grace …to be neighbour


    This year’s synod assembly focused on the freedom

    we have been given in Christ to love our neighbour.  The themed session were an exercise in contextual theology as we listened closely to our neighbours inside and outside the church, set within our times of praise and prayer.  (Debbie Lou Ludolph, Worship Ministries Director, original quote published in The Eastern Synod Assembly Edition).

    Each of the worship missals is attached to this article.  You are invited and encouraged to review and use the prayers, songs and bible studies that are provided.  At the end of the each missal is a list of permissions and resources.  Please credit the original authors for any resource  that you are using.

    Our thanks to the Worship Planning Team of:  Debbie Lou Ludolph, Jonah Bruce, Sherry Coman, Rev. Steve Hoffard, Bradley Moggach, Cherub Philip, Kathryn Smith and Robb Wilson.
