Prayers for an Inclusive. has been added to your Basket. 5 people found this helpful. Inspired by authorised prayers and innovative liturgies, scripture and tradition, and various collections, notably Janet Morley's "All Desires Known," these collects should be valuable for planning liturgies for small groups, perhaps as a starting point for their own creativity. Inclusive theology has gained huge momentum since the Inclusive Church Movement was formed in 2003.

This much-praised and strikingly beautiful collection of prayers offers a satisfying resource to all who are looking for collects in a contemporary idiom. Dramatic in their imagery, richly biblical in their language and skilfully connecting the bible readings for the day, they will enrich worship by focusing hearts and minds on the scriptures read in church - and all this in a style which resonates authentically with the longings and hopes of these seeking God in today's world. Clergy and worship leaders in many denominations now using the three-year lectionary will gladly welcome this splendid collection which includes prayers for every Sunday, holy day and major festivals of Years A, B and C.
Elastic Skunk
If you use the lectionary and you need help with a short opening prayer (a collect), this is an outstanding aid. The prayers are written in a more or less high church style, but they can be easily adopted to a more or less low church environment.
Thetalen
This is a small hardcover prayer book. It has simple but thematic prayers for the lectionary passages. I find the prayers helpful for a focus and not too complex, so one can make them their own, even add and subract if so moved. The prayers cover all periods through the Christian year and has prayers for each year, A, B, and C. Glad to have it as an inspirational prayer book.

In the past several years, many resources have become available to those desiring to provide a more thematic approach to the praying the Scriptures of the modern three-year Eucharistic lectionary (i.e., the modern Roman lectionary and its various cousins, including the Revised Common Lectionary). "Opening Prayers" from ICEL and the Canterbury Press fits the bill.

To be sure, there are a few collects that could still use some tweaking to make them more chant friendly or to allow them to flow a mite-bit-better in the American idiom (these prayers were originally drafted in the UK), but on the whole it provides a refreshing take on praying the Scriptures that is deeply rooted in the appointed readings of the day.

These collects are not mere reassignments of existent collects (not that there is anything wrong with such an approach) - the are all, each and every one of them, completely new. As such, they will probably not appeal to liturgical purists who want to tie the historic collects of the western liturgy into the new lectionary. (For such a resource, I would recommend a copy of the Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary which assigns the historical collects to the three year lectionary based on similarities of theme, or the "Propers of the Year" volume from the Lutheran Service Book (LCMS, Concordia Publishing).)

"Opening Prayers" manages to balance mild horizontal inclusive language (phrases like 'sons and daughters' and 'your children' are used and feel just right) with unswerving confessions of God in traditional idiom. It avoids issues that plague the collects of Revised Common Lectionary Prayers and Evangelical Lutheran Worship (Leaders Desk Edition), both of which suffer from (the former moreso than the latter), at times, vapid texts which carry little inspiration and bear utterly musical or repetitive qualities whatsoever. (ELW has some gems, 'diamonds in the rough' that need to be polished to shine brightly, but RCLP has nothing worthwile).

Several of the collects in particular stand out: the Easter Vigil and Trinity Sunday collect for Year C are the two best in the book, with Ordinary Time 27b coming in a close third. One outstanding feature is that, while a basic conclusion is used in Ordinary Time, one with thematic implications is generally used (with a few exceptions) throughout specific seasions. Thus, the doxological conclusion of collects in Advent have an emphasis on Christ 'whose coming is certain, whose day draws near'. In Paschaltide, Christ our 'Passover and peace' is praised... outstanding features that one might miss with a cursory glance.

If you are looking for a series with collects for the three-year lectionary, this is the volume for you.
