Every Moment Holy - Vol. 1: New Liturgies for Everyday Life

Douglas McKelvey

Every Moment Holy, Volume I brings new liturgies for the ordinary events of daily life, such as "A Liturgy for Feasting with Friends" or "A Liturgy for Laundering" or "A Liturgy for the First Hearthfire of the Season." These prayers are ways of reminding us that our lives are shot through with sacred purpose even when, especially when, we are too busy or too caught up in our busyness to notice. It's hoped that the liturgies in the Every Moment Holy series will serve as prayers to encourage readers in practicing mindfulness of the constant presence of God and draw them toward greater recognition of the eternal echoes resounding in every moment of our lives. The original Hardcover edition of Volume I has an imitation leather binding and gilded edges, with a red bookmark.
