More About Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren; Andy Crouch
 
 
 
Overview
Many of us go through the day feeling like we don't have time for God. But God can become present to us in surprising ways through our everyday routines. 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 in the 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."

In her debut, Anglican priest Warren shows readers how to turn the mundane and often frustrating aspects of daily life into a reflection on the sacred. Working her way through a typical dayher morning routine, busywork such as checking email, fights with her spouseWarren seamlessly blends together lived realities with theological reflections. Her writing is lyrical and often humorous, and she has a gift for making theological concepts seem easy to understand and (perhaps most importantly) easy to live. Her struggles with coming to terms with the banality of daily life are instantly relatable; for example, she frets that she spends most days doing dishes instead of leading a revolution, or changing diapers instead of ministering to the poor in some far-off region of the world. But she reminds readers that while they can get drunk on talk of justification, ecclesiology, pneumatology, Christology, and eschatology... these big ideas are borne outlived, believed, and enfleshedin the small moments of our day, in the places, seasons, homes, and communities that compose our lives. Accompanying questions for reflection or discussion will help readers further flesh out how to incorporate the sacred into their own daily lives. (Dec.)
