How can we trust God when we are in the dark?
Based around the nighttime prayer of Compline, Tish Harrison Warren, author of Liturgy of the Ordinary, explores themes of human vulnerability, suffering, and God's seeming absence. When she searched through a time of doubt and loss, the prayer was her anchor point. She says, "It was this practice that gave me words for my anxiety and grief and allowed me to reencounter doctrines of the church―the church's claims about reality―not as rational, tidy little antidotes for pain but as a light in darkness, as good news." Where can we find comfort when we lie awake worrying or weeping in the night? This book brings a powerful and direct approach to the challenges in our ordinary lives at work, at home, and in a world filled with uncertainty.
