Moms on Mission

Sponsored by Bethany Nursery Ministry

We were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. We loved you
so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but
our livesas well, because you had become so dear to us.
1 Thessalonians 2:7-8
 

  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.
