Craig A. Satterlee
In his follow-up to When God Speaks through Change: Preaching in Times of Congregational Transition and When God Speaks through You: How Faith Convictions Shape Preaching and Mission, Craig A. Satterlee uses eight stories to inspire other congregations to seek God through their worship. He discusses both the joys and challenges of worship, as well as the supportive parts of it, such as specific vocations, planning, and communication.
However your church chooses to express itself through worship, this book will make you think about how you’re going about it, why, and what impact it is having on the people within your congregation and the community around it.
“Craig Satterlee challenges us to pay close attention to what God is doing in our worship practices. His transformational stories of congregational renewal offer inspiration and guidance to pastors and congregational members who hunger for a deeper and fuller life of faith.”—Paul Galbreath, Associate Professor of Preaching and Worship, Union Theological Seminary and Presbyterian School of Christian Education
“Craig Satterlee’s stories about God’s saving activity in worship will inspire you to return to your own congregation newly attentive to how God is speaking through the holy acts of worship in that place.”—Martha L. Moore-Keish, Assistant Professor of Theology, Columbia Theological Seminary
“Imagine: worship that is about God. With great poignancy, Craig Satterlee guides us away from the ‘all about us’ culture and asks us to rethink our focus on what we get out of worship and reconsider worshiping a God whom we expect to transform the world.”—The Reverend Catherine Faith MacLean, St. Paul’s United Church, Edmonton
“This is a book to refresh and renew our understanding of Christ-centered worship. Satterlee weaves a beautiful tapestry of unassuming yet profound stories to remind us that worship is, first and foremost, about God. This book will bring tears to your eyes, laughter to your heart, and joy to your soul as you enter the flow of its grace.”—The Rev. Gene B. Manning, Christ Church Cathedral, Nashville, Tennessee
“Craig Satterlee, where were you when I was about to graduate from seminary and become a pastor?! I would have given anything back then for a book like yours that would have helped me bridge the gap between classroom theology and ‘real’ church life.” —Lester Ruth, Lily May Jarvis Professor of Christian Worship, Asbury Theological Seminary
