The Service for the Lord's Day

Get the inside story on the new hymnal liturgy. The 2013 Presbyterian Hymnal, Glory to God, will include a full order of worship for the Service for the Lord's Day, adapted from the 1993 Book of Common Worship. This issue will examine the theological and liturgical foundations of the order of worship, asking what we do in Sunday worship and why, and what difference it makes for the mission and ministry of the church. February 2013.
