As churches look for worship resources to use to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Canons of Dort, Reformed Worship is happy to offer this one from Rev. Mary Hulst who currently serves as the chaplain at Calvin College. Though it appeared in Reformed Worship 63, in March 2002 our theology and worship patterns remain the same making this an excellent resource for today. 

What has changed in many of our churches are the songs we sing so we offer the following songs to consider in addition to the ones in the article.
