 Worship Word of the Week


In this booklet you will find twenty-one short explanations of each step in the Divine Service. Included in each explanation is a short history of the origin of that portion of the worship service, the purpose it serves, the liturgical practice involved in this section of the worship service, and the connection you can make throughout the remainder of the week with Luther’s Small Catechism and the hymnal. For those congregations using  Lutheran Service Book, Luther’s Small Catechism is found on pages 321-330.

The Wyoming Worship Committee [1997] greatly thanks the Worship Committee of the Iowa District East [1997] for the idea and their examples, upon which these inserts are modeled, modified and expanded.

Liturgy, Hymnody, & Pulpit

Quarterly Book Review


Published by the Wyoming District (LCMS)

The Rev. Paul J Cain, Editor


Liturgy, Hymnody, and Pulpit began as a newsletter to pastors, musicians, and laypeople in the Wyoming District of The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod from our Worship Chairman to ease the transition from The Lutheran Hymnal, Lutheran Worship, and Hymnal Supplement 98 to Lutheran Service Book. Early on, we recommended books, CDs, and music. Those recommendations eventually became book reviews.

In Advent 2006, LHP Quarterly Book Review was born. In our first three years, we published 600 pages of book reviews and reviews of other resources, sermons, articles, and editorials.

Our archives are available as downloadable pdf files.

Beginning with Volume 4, LHP QBR switched to a blog format instead. As part of the transition, we did make available a pdf file of all our original content and forwarded posts.

Since adopting the blog format, we have been able to forward interesting posts from other blogs for your consideration and reflection.

In response to an expressed need, we now have two sub blogs that both feed into Liturgy, Hymnody, and Pulpit Quarterly Book Review.

The content of http://LHPQBR.blogspot.com should appear to remain the same.

Readers that wish to receive only our forwards can now also go to http://lhpfwd.blogspot.com/.

Readers that wish to only receive our original book and resource reviews and be notified of new resources that we have received may go to http://lhplbr.blogspot.com/, the LHP Lutheran Book Review blog.

If you're having trouble, please contact us!
