'Dragon Stories': a series of worship services based on Revelation

More on preaching Revelation, from Reformed Worship magazine:

Dragon Stories: Ideas for a series for adults--and children--on the book of Revelation
by David Koll
Reformed Worship #50

In the continuing challenge to keep our evening worship fresh, our congregation recently embarked on an unusual study of the book of Revelation. This book—full of dragon stories, horsemen, and angels—provided an intriguing series of nine worship services.

As a pastor, I’ve heard numerous requests for a sermon series on this book. Admittedly, I’ve been hesitant. So much is said from this book that I am not comfortable saying. So many of its passages are difficult to explain. I’ve rarely gone past preaching from the letters to the seven churches. In effect, I have let the last book of Scripture remain closed. This spring, after seventeen years in ministry, I felt compelled to try an overview study of this book, and I’m glad I did. ... Revelation is a book that in a certain sense needs to be reclaimed by Reformed Christians.
