Planning Worship

Are you thinking of starting a new worship service?  Or changing your current service?  Or perhaps you're a new worshiping community that needs help structuring a worship service.  If so, you'll need to start by having a conversation about what constitutes good worship and by what theological norms you make that judgment. Then you can start planning particular services.
