UPDATE: GROUP CLOSED
Can everyday, seemingly routine tasks and challenges draw us into a deeper understanding of who God is, and into a deeper relationship with Him and the people around us? This will be our exploration as we read and discuss Tish Harrison Warren’s book “Liturgy of the Ordinary: A Study of Sacred Practices in Everyday Life.”
Each chapter in this book looks at something that one might do during the course of a normal day as viewed through the lens of liturgy – small practices and habits that form us.
Warren opens up a practical theology in which we are offered pathways to the holiness of the ordinary. Reviewer Barbara Mahany writes: “this is spiritual guidance for the bed-maker, the teeth-brusher, the traffic-snarled among us. This is one ordinary day turned inside out, its hallowed script revealed, liturgical underpinnings exposed. . . She beautifully ties making the bed to the Creation story, to God’s making beauty from chaos. . . . It’s the nitty-gritty of daily work where Warren illuminates holiness.”– (The Chicago Tribune, February 28, 2017)
