Struggling with Everydayness
Tish Harrison Warren’s book, Liturgy of the Ordinary, is the third book in the 2016-17 Renovaré Book Club season. Here, she gives us a sneak peek into some of the themes of her book in a piece about learning to accept a “radical ordinariness” in living this Christian life.

Lent as a Springly Death
Lent is the season of reflection and repentance, yes. But it is also a season of renewal and rebirth as the earth awakens all around us. We are invited today to spring or, at least, step into a more meaningful Lent this year with Renovaré’s two Lenten devotionals: Less is More and Engage!.

Learning to Say Good-bye Together
