New Every Morning
daily reflections from Upper Room Books
New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Worship in Light of the Cross
Meditations for Lent
• October 2016
eBook (Available in ePub or Kindle)
How can the cross shed light on what we do in worship and why—not just in the Lenten season but in every season?
John Indermark urges us to focus on the cross, its imprint on how we worship as a community, and how it transforms our discipleship. This 6-week study inspires us to connect corporate worship with our daily lives. He organizes the daily readings according to the components of corporate worship: gathering, invocation, confession, proclamation, creed, response, and sacrament.
- Leader's Guide helps you share this worship experience with your community of faith.
- Daily readings are key in preparing you for worship experiences.
- Each daily reading includes a reflection question or action.
- Includes ideas for creating a weekly worship center to emphasize each week's theme.
