Compass series: Christian Explorations of Daily Living

"Everyday practices matter for Christian faith. Our ordinary routines-- eating, cooking, working, walking, shopping, playing, and parenting--are responses to the life God gives to the world... Bodies, baths, meals, and households matter to Christian faith because God takes these everyday practices and materials as God's own: blessing, redeeming, and transforming them. This series considers everyday practices as sites for theological reflection. When we pay close attention to everyday practices, we can glimpse classical Christian themes-- redemption, creation, and incarnation-- in new light. The series does not attempt to apply classical doctrines to particular practices but to offer narratives of ordinary routines, explore how immersion in them affects Christian life in a global world, and imagine how practice might re-form theology and theology reform practice."
