Rolling Ridge is adding a new weekday book group this spring meeting monthly on Wednesday mornings from 10-11:30 am eastern.  

We will begin with a study of Tish Harrison Warren’s book, Liturgy of the Ordinary: sacred practices in everyday life. Harrison Warren offers an invitation to, as Karen Swallow Prior says, ‘brush the dust off your dingy days and discover and revel the extraordinary that is to be found in the ordinary”. She takes a number of our tasks that, if not rote, we certainly very seldom perform with presence and awareness of the divine. 

Join us ONLINE as we bring an increased awareness and gratitude into our dailyness. 

Our schedule on Wednesdays at 10 am Eastern:
- March 1 - Foreword and Chapter 1: Waking
- April 5 - Chapter 2: Making the Bed
- May 3 - Chapter 3: Brushing Teeth
- June 7 – Chapter 4: Losing Keys
- July 5 – Chapter 5: Eating Leftovers
- August 2 – Chapter 6: Fighting with my Husband
- September 6 – Chapter 7: Checking Email
- October 4 – Chapter 8: Sitting in Traffic
- November 1 – Chapter 9: Calling a Friend
- December 6 – Chapter 10: Drinking Tea
- January 3 – Chapter 11: Sleeping
