About "Using Common Worship: Marriage"
This book is a hands-on guide to the Common Worship Marriage service, including Thanksgiving for Marriage. It offers straightforward and realistic ideas about how to use the services in your church. Drawing on his experience in parishes, Stephen Lake includes imaginative suggestions for a range of local situations, grounded in the thinking behind the new provisions. The features of the services are set out clearly, highlighting the differences from ASB and BCP. The introduction by Andrew Burnham, a member of the Liturgical Commission and of the General Synod Revision Committee working on the services, gives a unique insight into the preparation of the texts and the reasons why they are presented in this way. Using Common Worship - Marriage balances practical tips with theological grounding in a way that will enable parishes to make the most of the opportunities of Common Worship as a whole.
