Summary

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.

Tremendous work on everyday life

Tish Warren has written a book that I will return to again and again. I am going to work through this with my wife and maybe with a group of friends. I have rarely been as encouraged by a book as I have been by this one. I read Jamie Smith's popular level book on worship and habits a few months back, and these two books together make a great, great pair.

I thoroughly enjoyed Liturgy of the Ordinary, and (more importantly) I am walking away with a renewed desire to embrace the everydayness of my life as a place of worship and ministry

Profound and practical

I am new to liturgy in church and worship but have recently begun attending a church that uses liturgy. I find it very refreshing after a lifetime of another way of worshiping and this book was so helpful in understanding its purpose. She is an excellent writer and the narrator is very good. I plan to listen to it again.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

What a great book! Simple ways to find God in our lives. And it was wonderfully read too.

Best of 2017

What made the experience of listening to Liturgy of the Ordinary the most enjoyable?

I listened to this book on a road trip and loved the topic and the performance. It's my favorite "read" of the year! It reminded me afresh that worship is not contained to Sunday mornings. Practicing Christianity includes, but extends far beyond, Bible study, prayer and participation in authorized church programs. Christ's grace is embodied in the mundane routines of my home life, workplace and neighborhood, as well. I have an opportunity to receive and extend grace as I move about my day. I will definitely listen to this book again.
