The "cranberry hymnal", Evangelical Lutheran Worship, is the primary worship resource for the ELCA. It contains music, liturgy, readings, orders of worship for different occasions, prayers and much more.
We draw from other sources for songs and music, especially for our Prayer and Praise service. CCLI is one of those additional sources of licensed songs. A designated member reports our song usage through CCLI regularly so artists are appropriately compensated..
The Cyber Hymnal is another way to explore a broad range of Christian songs and hymns for worship or Christian education purposes.

Spend more time in scripture or hear new texts or old texts in new ways. One way to do that is to seek out the many different translations and versions of Bibles and other Study Aids available online.
Where was your favorite verse spoken? What was going on in that community? Do different translations use somewhat different words to express that precious idea? How do those words flavor the message? Are they more or less inclusive?
Or meditate on a piece of Christian Art or a Hymn. How does it speak to you today?
What do these Biblical messages say to you about our mission in the community of San Bernardino in our time?
