Item description for A Year of Grace: 365 Mealtime Prayers by William S. Kervin & John L. Bell...
Overview This book is an anthology of graces, with a rich variety of prayers, historic and contemporary, from around the world. These graces can be used in the home, at school, at formal or family meals. They can help us to rediscover the importance of shared hospitality and eating together, even in our individualistic age. Themes include thankfulness for creation, hospitality and friendship, the countryside and the seasons, and social justice. The graces can be used throughout the year, and are fully indexed to make finding a timely prayer quick and easy. The wonderfully pithy Forward is written by John Bell, a member of Scotlands Iona Community, whose members share in a fivefold rule of prayer and Bible study; tithing; accounting for time; fellowship; and working for peace and justice. The Revd. Dr. William S. Kervin is Assistant Professor of Public Worship at Emmanuel College, Toronto, and an ordained minister of The United Church of Canada. He served as a liturgical consultant for the production of Voices United, the new hymnbook of the United Church.
