New: Dec. 25 TLC Online

The Dec. 25 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. This issue features TLC’s annual collection of gift ideas: 36 contributors recommend books, films, music, and a manner of time management that centers on the Daily Office.

The Rev. Erin Jean Warde, associate rector for Christian formation at Church of the Transfiguration in Dallas, writes:

Sacred Ordinary Days reminds of me of what I already believe: that even the mundane appointments of my life are transformed by God into opportunities for new life, like bread into body and wine into blood.
