Don’t Miss These New CPH Resources
Please take note of two fantastic new resources from CPH (Yes, I know I say everything is fantastic that I mention, but they are!). And if you find these things of interest would you pass all this along the Internet, the old, “world-wide-everybody.”
Away in a Manger: Resources for Advent-Christmas Preaching and Worship
Pastors, in particular, be looking for the mailing from CPH describing our newest children’s Christmas program for 2008: Away in a Manger. But….also please notice in that mailing the flyer for an even newer resource from CPH, a comprehensive Advent and Christmas program for the entire parish, that dovetails perfectly with the Christmas program. It too is called Away in a Manger and it is authored by Rev. Dr. Scott Murray, of Houston, Texas. It offers four sermon studies and sermons (three midweek service); four Bible studies (student and leader pages); four children’s messages; worship resources for Advent and Christmas; and a CD-ROM with all these resources on it for personal adaptations in Rich Text Format. The pastor’s kit also comes with a sample of the Away in a Manger Devotional Book and the worship bulletins created for this series.
For more information about this comprehensive Advent/Christmas resource, and to see the sermon series, visit the product's web site.
The price is $26.99 and you may place an order either on the web, or by calling CPH at 800-325-3040 and requesting item number: 15-5112
Sing the Faith: The Small Catechism Set to Music
This is a complete recording of the Small Catechism, with the entire text broken down into manageable “chunks” all set to song. It is incredibly powerful and the reactions we have been getting from teachers and pastors have been: “I want it, now!” It’s that good. The music was composed by the gifted church musician, Phil Magness, and Singing the Faith comes presently as a CD-ROM and there is also a companion songbook with the complete music for instruction or performance.
You can hear samples and read more about these resources. The price is $7.99 for the CD-ROM (item number 79-0004) and $19.99 for the songbook (item number 22-3109). You may place an order for these items on the web, or by calling 800-325-3040.
Just one more thing….
In conjunction with our new Fall catalog, that is now “live” and ready for you… We are offering the Concordia edition of the Book of Concord at a promotional price point again, of $22.00, and orders from the catalog of $70.00 dollars or more qualify for free shipping and handling. You can also shop from the new catalog on-line.
So, word to the wise, and all that….take advantage of this lower price. Consider batching an order together from your congregation and sending it in for your Fall study programs. Call your order in at 800-325-3040. Or place your order on-line.
I hope this information is useful to you. Would you please spread the word on these resources to your various friends, colleagues, e-mail lists, blogs, groups, etc.
PS — In a little bit I’ll be able to tell you more about the Treasury of Daily Prayer which went to the printer this week. Here’s a picture of it, as the the “push-cart edition” — we had to load the final pages up on a cart to push around. More later, oh, one more thing….coming soon I’ll be able to tell you and show you a great new Sunday children’s worship resource titled Growing in Worship. You are going to love it. Exciting things. I’m bursting with anticipation but I need a bit more time before I can spill all the details. Coming soon though. Be looking.
