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.
