Worship Matters: Episode 83 – Planning for Holy Week, Easter Season & Pentecost

Join the Discipleship Ministries Worship Team as we walk through three upcoming lectionary worship series for the upcoming high holy season. We begin with “In Awe of Grace,” a worship series that begins on Palm Sunday, then includes Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter. We share the thought behind grouping the special days in this way and some suggestions on how you might use them in your local context. Next, we explore the Eastertide series “A Living Hope,” which combines the Psalm assigned for each week with the Epistle as a way of helping us remember how to live out the Easter event in our daily living. Finally, we offer a two-week series for Pentecost and Trinity Sunday which we are calling “When God Came Down Like Fire.” We note that Pentecost, especially, is often a day of joy and excitement, but could also be a quieter observance when we compare the Acts chapter 2 event with the gospel reading from John (20:19-23) where Jesus breathes the Spirit into them. We finish with Trinity Sunday, a celebration of the mystery of the knowable unknowable God. Join us for this lively gallop through these special worship moments in the life of the church.

“Worship Matters” is a podcast from the worship team of Discipleship Ministries, designed to deal with the intricacies of planning worship each week. Hosted by Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong, Executive Director of Worship Ministries and Director of Music Ministries; and Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, this podcast explores how to plan worship using the common lectionary while creating worship experiences and series that are engaging, relevant, and adaptable for any church setting.
