Liturgy of the Ordinary

Sacred Practices in Everyday Life

by Tish Harrison Warren

In the over­looked moments and rou­tines of our day, we can become aware of God’s pres­ence in sur­pris­ing ways. How do we embrace the sacred in the ordi­nary and the ordi­nary in the sacred? Framed around one ordi­nary day, this book explores dai­ly life through the lens of litur­gy, small prac­tices, and habits that form us. Each chap­ter looks at something―making the bed, brush­ing her teeth, los­ing her keys―that the author does every day. Draw­ing from the diver­si­ty of her life as a cam­pus min­is­ter, Angli­can priest, friend, wife, and moth­er, Tish Har­ri­son War­ren opens up a prac­ti­cal the­ol­o­gy of the every­day. Each activ­i­ty is relat­ed to a spir­i­tu­al prac­tice as well as an aspect of our Sun­day wor­ship. Come and dis­cov­er the holi­ness of your every day.



This beautiful book will brush the dust from your dingy days and reveal the extraordinary that is to be found in the ordinary. No mundane daily task will be the same once these pages open your eyes to how the work of your hands reflects the ways of the Creator and the rhythms of eternity.
Karen Swallow Prior, author of Booked and Fierce Convictions
