EVERY MOMENT HOLY is a book of liturgies for the ordinary events of daily life--liturgies such as "A Liturgy for Feasting with Friends" or "A Liturgy for Laundering" or "A Liturgy for the First Hearthfire of the Season." These 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.
-over 100 liturgies for daily life (including liturgies for meals)
-beautiful leather-bound hardcover
-over 20 illustrations by Ned Bustard
I have known about this book for a while and I’m delighted that I decided to purchase it. It is so beautifully written and it has done my soul much good. It is a valuable reminder that even in the seemingly small and ordinary moments of day to day life, we can honour and glorify the Lord. This book encourages us to see the beauty and opportunity in these moments, rather than to pass over or belittle them. I’m so thankful for that.
I have been nourished and thoroughly blessed by this book. As a teenager I moaned and groaned about liturgy in Church, now in my early 40’s I have a transformed attitude. It has helped me place all the seemingly inconsequential routines of the day into Gods hands. I am reminded that He cares about every aspect of our lives, and in turn reading these prayers aloud can be challenging when it shines a spotlight on the depth of our sin, but then in our repentance and honesty towards God comes His forgiveness, grace and mercy. I love the bible quotes that accompany the prayers down the side of the page, they are thoughtfully selected and the Holy Spirit has nudged me to meditate on them throughout the day. I love reading aloud and so I would recommend any fellow Christians all also do to buy this book it will really bless you.
This book is both beautifully presented, and wonderfully helpful. With liturgies (pre–written prayers for those not used to them) that cover a huge range of situations, expressing powerful emotion and deep wisdom, a really moving resource for all Christians.
