After several years of working with scores of communities, liturgy experts, artists, and musicians, we’re excited to announce that Common Prayer: Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals will be out in time for Advent. It’s more than a book… it’s a way of life. We’re excited to share it with you.

We kicked off Advent with a total of 167 Common Prayer Parties in 38 US states and 12 different countries, gathering thousands of folks in their local communities to eat and sing and pray together. It’s been a joy to hear the echoes of sisters and brothers around the world beginning to pray together.

See pictures from all the parties!

Read a post on the parties from Shane and Jonathan.
