Although I wouldn't have read this book if it weren't an assignment for the Worship Associates program at my UU church, I'm glad now that I've read it. The authors visited a number of worship services across the country and compiled data and their impressions, as well as useful tips. The book was well organized, and includes a list of additional resources in the back. ( )

Book description
Wayne Arnason and Kathleen Rolenz, co-ministers at West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church near Cleveland, Ohio, embarked on an eighteen-month sabbatical road trip in search of the cutting edge of innovation in worship culture. They attended services and interviewed worship leaders at thirty congregations of diverse sizes and traditions. This book--the result of their research--is a challenge to all Unitarian Universalists who care about the services in which they participate. A guidebook for revitalizing our worship life, Worship that Works provides practical, specific advice to improve the key elements of the service and increase the spiritual resonance of worship through symbols, music, cultural sensitivity, inclusion and more. Includes a critique of UU worship as a central spiritual practice and offers tips gleaned from the authors' visits to thirty transformative worship services from a variety of religious traditions, four of which are described in detail.
