“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.” –Publisher’s Weekly starred review
