Liturgy of the Ordinary

Adult Education Topical Book Study: Sundays, beginning April 28, at 9:45 a.m.

This spring, you are invited to join the Adult Christian Education Team’s topical study, which begins reading Tish Harrison Warren’s Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life on Sunday, April 28.

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, Liturgy of the Ordinary explores daily life through the lens of liturgy, small practices, and habits that form us. Each chapter of this book 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.

Tish Harrison Warren is a priest in the Anglican Church in North America. After eight years with InterVarsity Graduate and Faculty Ministries at Vanderbilt and the University of Texas at Austin, she currently serves as co-associate rector at Church of the Ascension in Pittsburgh. She writes regularly for The Well, Christianity Today (CT), and CT Women. She is from Austin, Texas, and now lives in Pittsburgh with her husband and two young daughters in a house chock full of books with no matching forks or matching socks anywhere to be found.

On Sundays, after a time of fellowship and light refreshments in the Sharp Atrium at 9:30 a.m., please join our discussion leaders in the Craig Room at 9:45?a.m. The study will begin on Sunday, April 28, and then will continue on Sundays, May 12 through 26. (Christian Education classes will not meet on Sunday, May 5, due to the Pittsburgh Marathon.)
