    2. Although I wouldn t have read this book if it weren t an assignment for the Worship Associates program at my UU church, I m glad now that I ve read it The authors visited a number of worship services across the country and compiled data and their impressions, as well as useful tips The book was well organized, and includes a list of additional resources in the back.
