If you’re looking for a daily dose of saccharine-sweet devotions, this isn’t the book for you. And if you crave a spiritual taskmaster, devotions that ladle out guilt and reward in equal measure, move on to the next set of devotions.
These are devotions for people who don’t do devotions.
They are stories about everyday life—and how we can seek and find the divine in the midst of it all. The words are meant to be starting points, not megaphone-style declarations of certainty, and you’re invited to bring your own experience and imagination to these reflections. The hope is that they will help you see God’s hand at work in both the mundane and miraculous day-to-day interactions of our lives.
Also available on Amazon Kindle and Apple Books.
"Here is a rare gem, a devotional that causes you to look forward to each passing page. The Rev. Tim Schenck has the audacity to claim that you can get to know God better even if you don’t think you have that capacity, and he backs that claim up with a substantive book that shows us the heart of God. Tim has gotten to know God and wants you to know God too, even if devotional books aren’t normally your thing. This book will be on my bedside table for a long time, and it will be read."- The Rev. Robert W. Lee, Author of A Sin by Any Other Name: Reckoning with Racism and the Heritage of the South
"Whether you are someone who is a member of an active member of a faith community or who is simply seeking some time each day or week or whenever you find space to spend a few moments, Tim Schenck meets you where you are with quirky, humorous, and insightful reflections on life and the bigger than life invitation of God to love ourselves and each other. From the angel's share to garbage time, Tim invites us to see awe in everyday moments, to rest in the wisdom of life gone not quite right, and to find love written in life each day."- The Rev. Laurie Brock, author of Horses Speak of God and God, Grace, and Horses, and rector of St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Church, Lexington, Kentucky
