The Shepherd's Call - Te Karanga o te Hepara: Prayers and liturgies for rural Aotearoa New Zealand

The Shepherd's Call - Te Karanga o te Hepara: Prayers and liturgies for rural Aotearoa New Zealand (2nd edition)

By Bennett, Bill

Discover a prayer to cover every aspect of rural life. A musician and composer of many hymns, Anglican priest Bill Bennett understands the complexity of rural life with its overlapping communities and its deep dependence on seasonal life. This understanding shines through thi...s book. 117 prayers are arranged into broad themes: the seasons, environment, community, mission and ministry, work, crisis and loss. There are also six sets of Eucharist liturgies and another five liturgies focused on the bush, harvest community life and adverse events. This book will be a valued resource for both clergy and lay worship leaders. "These liturgical resources will touch everyone who is interested in seasonal joy and struggle, planting and harvest, whitebaiting and hospitality. A theology of land and missional ministry that is shaped by both local life and God's call, with a deep understanding of tikanga Maori, mean that these prayers and reflections are uniquely and wonderfully New Zealand. I commend them to you and hope they are widely used across the country. They are for us all." From the Foreword by Rev Dr Jenny Dawson.
