Advent Reading

‘Liturgy of the Ordinary: sacred practices in everyday life’ by the American priest Tish Warren is our main book and the focus of our Advent sermons and book groups. The chapters of the book reflect the ordinary patterns of our daily lives from rising in the morning to going to sleep at night, and seeks to connect our domestic lives with the liturgy of the Church so that we can discover the sacred in the secular. Accessible and practical, each chapter also suggests a spiritual practice that might help us to pray at home whether on our own or with others.

The relevant chapter for each Sunday’s sermon can be found below with some hard copies in church. The sermons can be found here.
