Tuesday Morning Small Group reading “Liturgy of the Ordinary”

The Tuesday Morning Prayer Breakfast Small Group just began a 6-week study of Tish Harrison Warren's book "Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life ." The group meets at 6:00a at Panera Bread Company on Highway 99 in Hazel Dell. Facilitated by Pr. Peter and Intern Pastor Joel, each session begins with prayer and ends when the first participant leaves for work, usually around 7:05-7:10a. Newcomers and guests are always welcome and may pop in any week.

It's a perfect time to jump in, try it on, and discover how once-a-week prayer and study can enhance your spiritual life. The Tuesday Morning Small Group is always open to newcomers and guests. If you are a first-time guest, your breakfast is on Pr. Peter!

Synopsis of "Liturgy of the Ordinary" - Christianity Today Book of the Year for 2018
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.
