UWorship: Liturgical Resources

UWorship is a liturgical resource that engages both the rhythm of scripture and the life of a college student through a 4-year, 32-week lectionary cycle, which includes prayers for every aspect of worship, liturgy for occasional services for first and last Sundays of the academic calendar, mission/service trips, Advent, Lent, and Easter, and other special services related to the unique demands of collegiate ministry.

UWorship is available in print form through the Office of Christian Formation. Alternatively, you can download a pdf of UWorship for free here.


Meditations on Luke

“The theology of Luke is grounded in a Jesus who comes not just to offer compassion to those who are wounded but also to speak to the evil of those who wound.”

(See Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder’s introductory comments to Luke in The Peoples’ Bible, Fortress Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 2009, p. 1470.)


Spring 2018

Text selections for Spring 2018 are based on Year 3 of the UWorship Campus Ministry Lectionary (p. 15 of the UWorship resource, see above). Each of the following meditations was written by Dr. Daniel Frayer-Griggs. Dan lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he teaches Theology at Duquesne University and serves as an Elder at Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community.
