Unfolding the Living Word, New Kyries, Canticles, Gospel Acclamations and Collects for Holy Communion, by Jim Cotter

SKU CP-9781848252752

Within the Common Worship order for Holy Communion, there is a core of texts and material which must be said or done in order that the service can be recognized as authentic. However, there are other variants which may be used. This book provides new alternative texts for those variable points in the liturgy to refresh the celebration of Holy Communion. For each Sunday of Years A, B & C there are new liturgical texts for the Kyrie eleison, the psalm, the acclamation that introduces the Gospel of the day, and an additional collect which could be used at the end of the sermon or after the distribution of communion.
Very few writers have the poetic sensibility and ability to take ordinary language and imagery and create prayers and responses of beauty and depth. Rooted in the tradition of scriptural imagery and metaphor for speaking of God, Jim Cotter's poetic richness will enlarge our imagination and capacity for worship.
