We are not just "thinking things." We are ritual and habitual creatures always moving toward a goal, a love, a desire, whether we realize it or not. In this excellent book, James K.A. Smith pushes us to consider the ritual and liturgy of our daily lives, the rituals of our worship, and the way those things are forming our habits and loves. As a pastor, one of the things I most appreciated about this book was that it was not only critical, but also offered helpful and thoughtful ideas for making meaningful changes in our lives, our families, the church, and the world. I plan to use pieces of this book with my Christian Education team as well as my Music and Worship team as we consider the ways our worship and education in the church are forming us into the kind of people we are becoming.
