Each chapter of this book holds a new treasure to take along on the journey of life and let it slowly unfold and open itself up over and over again.

I purchased this book for a small group book study. I wasn't completely convinced at first - but then many of the ways in which the author experiences the world and her faith resonated within my soul. I found myself quoting her often. She really has a way of ordering her words. This book will challenge the reader to find the sacred in the everyday, common, seemingly mundane moments of life.

Ms. Taylor strikes gold as she moves from big city to small town and discovers the world. We truly are Adam (Earthling) created from Adama (Earth) and need to reconnect.
Publishers Weekly, 2009-01-12 Author of an acclaimed memoir (Leaving Church) and a gifted preacher, Taylor is one of those rare people who truly can see the holy in everything. Since everyone should know such a person, those who don't can-no, must-read this book, with its friendly reminders of everyday sacred. Taylor's 12 chapters mine the potentially sacred meaning of simple daily activities and conditions, like walking, paying attention, saying no to work one Sabbath day each week. Hanging laundry is setting up a prayer flag, for God's sake. Since Taylor, an Episcopal priest, no longer pastors a church, she can "do church" everywhere: in line at the grocery store interacting with the cashier, walking a moonlit path with her husband. Her candor is another of the book's virtues: she is a failure at prayer, and cannot explain why or how it is, or isn't, answered ("I do not know any way to talk about answered prayer without sounding like a huckster or a honeymooner"). Savor this book. (Feb.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
