I am a fan of The Rabbit Room (thank you Corndawg for introducing me to TRR!). Their mission is to make things good, beautiful, and lasting, and I see (and have often been the recipient of) the humans of ECPC striving and struggling in this mission as well. I want to pastor you toward the Author and Perfecter of all things true, good, beautiful, and lasting! I want to encourage and energize you along the way – and I think that THIS RESOURCE will help! If you would like to rendezvous with me for a cup of coffee to read and discuss these liturgies for everyday living, then please email me and we’ll schedule a time to meet!

And on that note, allow me to share with you a liturgy for the ritual of morning coffee:

Meet me, O Christ, in this stillness of morning.

Move me, O Spirit, to quiet my heart.

Mend me, O Father, from yesterday’s harms.

From the discords of yesterday, resurrect my peace.

From the discouragements of yesterday, resurrect my hope.

From the weariness of yesterday, resurrect my strength.

From the doubts of yesterday, resurrect my faith.

From the wounds of yesterday, resurrect my love.

Let me enter this new day, aware of my need, and awake

to your grace, O Lord.
