Book Summary of Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren


Most of the time our days are ordinary. Sleep, eat, work, relate, sleep…repeat. How does our growing relationship with our extraordinary God fill such ordinariness?

21st century Christians can be conditioned to expect the radical. Our culture prizes instant results and extreme experiences. Church culture often reflects similar trends, a yearning for more intense spirituality, with radical experiences and profound worship, all the while despising the ‘ordinary’ processes of God’s work in our lives.

Reading this book, we will walk through a perfectly normal day. We’ll get up, make the bed, lose our keys, check our email, get stuck in traffic, drink tea. Nothing extraordinary will happen. 

But, with our eyes open to God’s presence in all of this, every single thing that happens will be an extraordinary opportunity to grow in godliness and relate to Him.

The new life we have in Christ, “is lived out in days, hours and minutes. God is forming us into a new people. And the place of that formation is in the small moments of today” (p. 21).

Are you a Christian with an ordinary life? If so, this is a must-read!
