SUMMARY: A beautiful book full of liturgies for individuals, couples, families, and congregations. Includes the mundane (the washing of windows), the celebratory (leaving on a holiday), the sorrowful (insoluble homesickness), and everything in between (sleeping in tents). Douglas Kaine McKelvey has a knack for the right words for any situation.
Every Moment Holy, Vol.1 comes in two sizes, but we particularly like the pocket edition, which comes in soft leather and measures at just 6 inches by 7 inches, making it easy to throw in a small bag.
Some of our favorite and most often used liturgies include “For Domestic Days,” “For a Sick Day” (see below), “For First Waking,” and “For the Ritual of Morning Coffee.”
KEY QUOTE: “How fearful a vocation is the writing of liturgies, O Lord, for it presumes the shaping of words that others will speak to You.” – From a liturgy For Writing Liturgies
BONUS: If you want to learn more about the book, listen to McKelvey discuss his inspiration for the book, where the liturgies came from and much more on the Stone Table Podcast. Skip to 11:54 to get to the interview.

Unfortunately many Christians use woke as an insult ignorant of the terms history. One way we can show respect to our fellow image bearers is by learning about the history of a word. By reading, listening to, and watching the various forms of media below you should have the start of a well-rounded understanding of the word woke and why Christians should stop using it as a pejorative.Read more
