Read Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life Online Free - 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."

This book was just what I needed.
I love its emphasis on rhythms, routines, cycles, rituals, or whatever else we like to call those things we repeat over and over again. Our lives are full of daily, monthly, seasonal and annual repetition. Tish Harrison Warren sets out to explain how there's holin...

I could not get enough of this book. My inner Anglican appreciates her belief system made real through her words - but my favorite were the little nuggets of goodness found in various phrases. Such a fan.

I cannot say enough good things about what Tish Warren has written here. Funny enough, enjoying this book for its beauty was a good spiritual exercise for someone as pragmatic and anxious as me (she explores the God-given enjoyment of pleasure in a great chapter). She elegantly and with brevity d...

Summary: Walking through the common events of an ordinary day from waking to sleeping, Warren explores how we encounter in these ordinary things the Christ we worship each Sunday.

I've read a lot of essays and books, heard numerous sermons on the ordinary, everyday Christian life. This is the book I wish I'd written (though, obviously, Warren did a much lovelier job with it than I would have). Warren knits the "radical" lives and "ordinary" lives (we might even say, aspect...

A profound book on how the liturgy of the historic Church--more specifically, the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer and the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA)--connects to the ordinary moments of our lives. Connections drawn are baptism with waking, the Eucharist with everyday meals, pa...

Lots of thought provoking ideas in this book. It's a quick read simply written but the ideas containe...

This is one of those rare books that I can't stop reading but don't want to finish. Warren is smart, insightful, and does an amazing job helping readers to connect our ordinary lives to the deeper spiritual realities. Excellent offering.

This book was practical and simply written, yet profoundly described how the liturgies and habits of our daily lives reflect and affect our lives with Christ. As an Anglican I thought this book accurately described many of the things I love about the Anglican church and also inadvertently address...
