Overview

Worship involves the senses. The light filtering in from the stained-glass windows, the colors of the vestments, and even the words we read in our Bibles and prayer books fascinate us visually in worship. The sounds of musical instruments and voices raised in song grip us audibly. The feel of the wood on the pews and the altar or the leather on our Bibles can engage our sense of touch. All of these sensations come together to form our worship experience.

In Bread for the Journey, Rolf Svanoe has sought to attract our other senses, enhancing our encounter with God. This Lenten worship series offers sermons for Ash Wednesday, each week in Lent, and services for Holy Week and Easter. This book also includes recipes for breads that can be baked and distributed during the services, each scent and taste offering an additional insight into the Lenten worship experience. Whether it is the sweetness of Welcome Bread or the bitterness of Betrayer's Bread, each bread takes us on a journey through the season of Lent, culminating in the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Pastors and other ministers will be able to use this resource to draw their congregations into a deeper and more fulfilling Lenten worship. Bread for the Journey is a resource that will feed a congregation, both spiritually and physically.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

This charming seasonal worship guide by Svanoe, associate pastor of a Lutheran church in Sioux Falls, SD, differs from the many others like it in that it includes recipes. After all, if a best-selling novel can be crafted from quilt patterns, why not a liturgy from recipes? Different breads-with different degrees of leavening-tell or reinforce different lessons. But Svanoe's errand into the senses does not end there; he wants worshippers to engage with sight, sound, touch, and taste for a full experience both of the sorrows and the joys of Lent and Easter.
