In a world and nation marked by suffering and division, Marcus Halley invites readers to explore rituals of healing and reconciliation in parish practice.How is Christian community fostered when healing and reconciliation are prayerfully and actively sought? How do the ancient rituals of healing practiced among us today form a community committed to the Way of Love, the Way of Healing? And how does such practice lead the Christian community to seek peace? The basics of Episcopal and Anglican worship in North America are explored in this Little Books series, which invites parishioners and newcomers to consider both the beauty of worship and Episcopal ethical commitments.
“Samuel Torvend asked a question that I’ve been mulling over since I heard it in 2009: ‘How do we live in the world the things that we rehearse in worship?’ Little Books on Liturgy is a scripturally and theologically grounded series that guides the reader to engage and answer the question through the lens of the Anglican liturgical and lectionary traditions.”―The Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis
“The Little Books on Liturgy series is a gift to the church that will inspire parish conversations, liturgy planners, and individual study. These are great resources that deserve wide circulation and broad engagement.”―The Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander, author, Celebrating Liturgical Time
“By centering on creation and baptism, Marcus Halley offers a book that clarifies our understanding of the pastoral rites of the church. This book is for everyone who wants to engage in the critical work of reconciliation, healing, and peace-making.”―The Rev. Dr. Paul Fromberg, author, The Art of Disruption
