June 9th – Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren
Sacred Practices in Everyday Life
Framed around one ordinary day, this book explores daily life through the lens of liturgy, small practices, and habits that form us. Each chapter looks at something author Tish Harrison Warren does in a day—making the bed, brushing her teeth, losing her keys—and relates it to spiritual practice as well as to our Sunday worship.
Available thru Amazon on Kindle or Audible. Nice hardback available thru Intervarsity Press. (approx. $18) with free shipping. CCG has a few extra copies available if you would need a reduced price or would like to borrow one.
July 14th – Old Filth by Jane Gardam (Book 1 of 3: Old Filth Trilogy)
Sir Edward Feathers has had a brilliant career, from his early days as a lawyer in Southeast Asia, where he earned the nickname Old Filth (FILTH being an acronym for Failed In London Try Hong Kong) to his final working days as a respected judge at the English bar. Yet through it all he has carried with him the wounds of a difficult and emotionally hollow childhood. Now an eighty-year-old widower living in comfortable seclusion in Dorset, Feathers is finally free from the regimen of work and the sentimental scaffolding that has sustained him throughout his life. He slips back into the past with ever mounting frequency and intensity, and on the tide of these vivid, lyrical musings, Feathers approaches a reckoning with his own history. Not all the old filth, it seems, can be cleaned away. Though this isn’t a Christian book we will look at it from a Christian point of view.
Hard copy (approx. $15), Kindle or Audible versions are available thru Amazon. Amazon has the three book trilogy available for $20.

Hard copy (approx. $10), Kindle and Audible versions are available thru Amazon.
