Directory for Worship: Preface

The preface to the proposed revision to the PC(USA) Directory for Worship describes the purpose of this document, establishes its biblical and confessional foundations, and discusses its authority in the life of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).


Questions for Reflection or Discussion

Read this section of the proposed revision, ideally alongside relevant sections in the current Directory for Worship.

(1) Why is it important for Presbyterian worship to be grounded in Scripture and the Confessions of the church?

(2) What value is there in having a broad description of the theology and practice of worship, rather than a prescribed set of liturgies?

(3) When and where have you encountered the Directory for Worship in your ministry or membership in the church? How has it been useful or not useful? 


EMAIL COMMENTS on the proposed revision to the Directory for Worship. For official consideration in subsequent drafts of the revision, all comments must be received in writing at this address by July 1, 2015.
