With God in the ordinary

Visiting Pittsburgh on sabbatical I was fortunate enough to be given a signed copy of this book by its author, Trish Harrison Warren, at a meeting in which she was speaking.

I've just read the book and I highly recommend it. The blurb on the back says 'God is near. In overlooked moments and routines, we can become aware of God's presence in surprising ways.'

Trish takes us through everyday events like waking, making your bed, brushing your teeth, loosing keys, eating leftovers, arguing with your spouse, checking email, sitting in traffic, calling a friend, drinking tea, and sleeping.

Each activity is related to a spiritual practise, to biblical teaching and to Sunday worship. There is a great deal of spiritual wisdom in this book and I particularly liked her appreciation of the Anglican liturgy, having come to it from a non-liturgical church. Excellent.
