Liturgy of the Ordinary by Anglican priest Tish Harrison Warren, IVP 2016

In overlooked moments and routines, 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?  Each chapter looks at something that the author does during the day.  Life is viewed through the lens of liturgy - small practices and habits that form us.

Living the Fifth - a three-part webinar series focused on the fifth Mark of Mission of the Anglican Communion.

The Rev. Mark Nichols, Creation Care Animator for the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, will lead the sessions.  The sessions, running 2:30 - 3:30 pm AST, will be:

    1. Wednesday, March 4: A Missional Calling – The Church is clearly discerning a call to care for creation with intentionality and a sense of urgency. How is this call rooted in scripture? How is this call expressed theologically, liturgically and liturgically?
    2. Wednesday, March 18: A Communal Calling – Our faith is lived out in community. How can parish communities live out the fifth mark of mission in tangible and meaningful ways?
    3. Wednesday, April 1:  A Personal Calling – Christians walk by faith in a God who created this world and all that is upon it, and entrusted it to our care. How can we, as individuals, manifest reverence for, safeguard the integrity of, sustain and even renew the life of the earth on which we live?

Going Deeper with Missional Habits: 2 formats:  booklet | bookmark

While this resource can be used on one’s own, the church is about relationship and walking in faith together; so you are encouraged to join, or form, a parish or neighbour­hood group.   It is recognized that you may have already begun to form these habits, so we invite you to revisit what has changed and to share your experiences.  Please also tailor the questions to your context.   

Each format is designed to be printed on card stock, double-sided on the short edge.
