WHEN IN AWESOME WONDER: Liturgy Distilled from Daily Life
Jill Y. Crainshaw
All of life is liturgy. People encounter God as they live, work, and play in human communities and as they work to sustain the health of communities and the ground on which communities are built.
Liturgy is distilled from everyday life when we peer through the mist and see the sacramental and spiritual dimensions of daily actions, objects, conversations, and events. This book explores this dimension of spirituality and celebrates the ways God's sacramental gifts and presence arises from and returns to everyday human experiences.
