Gifts in Open Hands contains multicultural liturgies, prayers, affirmations, blessings, and poetry by people from the global community. Black-and-white images for reproduction in church bulletins is included, and a new feature is the arrangement of translations so that materials in other languages are available to English-speaking as well as bilingual worship planners.
