Sample text

31 In 1891, Charles S. Harrower of the Methodist Episcopal Church first published Select Psalms, a book lacking the official sanction of the The Lord’s Day: The Shape of Worship 17 General Conference, but carrying the “imprimatur” of Bishop Edward G. Andrews. Compiled in response to an apparent demand to “dignify and enrich” public worship, the book encouraged the use of a psalm with a concluding Gloria Patri in public worship—even though such a provision had not been specified in the Conference-approved service of 1888.

Ecumenical involvement during the 1970s and 1980s by some of the Methodist branches in the Consultation on Common Texts (CCT) led to contributions by Methodist representatives toward the production of the three-year, three-lesson (plus psalm) Common and Revised Common lectionaries, with the results of those endeavors published in many of the Methodist service books produced in the late twentieth century. The frequency of lectionary usage in Methodist worship rose, but many congregations—and their preachers—still relied upon immediate divine inspiration or personal and pastoral agendas in the selection of Scripture for Sunday.

These “innovations” were tested in non-Methodist congregations as well. 56 Although much of what developed was ephemeral, it did actualize for many Methodists the long-held principle of liturgical freedom for Sunday worship. Worship on the Lord’s Day in a Methodist congregation may reproduce past or present official denominational services, it may be the product of a localized evolutionary process by which various worship patterns or components of worship are molded together to create a unique whole, it may combine the two previous 30 American Methodist Worship types over the course of the year, or it may be highly variable in form.
