We are so grateful for the opportunity to announce Every Moment Holy, Vol. 2: Death, Grief, and Hope by Doug McKelvey. Pre-orders are now open and shipments will begin in February 2021. Here’s what you can expect in this new volume.
Every Moment Holy, Vol. 2: Death, Grief, and Hope is a book of liturgies for seasons of dying and grieving—liturgies such as “A Liturgy for the Scattering of Ashes,” “A Liturgy for the Loss of a Spouse,” or “A Liturgy for the Wake of a National Tragedy.” These are ways of reminding us that our lives are shot through with sacred purpose and eternal hopes even when—especially when—suffering and pain threaten to overwhelm us.
With this new volume, you will find:
- A beautiful leather-bound hardcover with gilded edges
- Over 100 liturgies
- Illustrations by Ned Bustard
- A silk bookmark
Examples of the kinds of liturgies inside include:
For Caregivers in Need of Rest
For the Living of Last Things
For Releasing Ambitions & Embracing Christ
Seeking Amendment & Reconciliation
To Stir Courage in a Child Facing Death
For Those Who Will Gather to Grieve For Me
A Lesson We May Learn from Death
For Moments When Dying Feels Unfair
For the Forgiving of Unintended Wounds
