A New Liturgy For Daily Work

We stumbled on this site the other day (thanks to a recommendation from Made to Flourish): A New Liturgy.

They’ve released six 25-minute works: each is a “journey of music, prayer, scripture, and space that helps open us to The Almighty in any location, season, community, or emotion” and create “holy space wherever we find ourselves.”

Check it out!

P.S. On their Facebook page, they’re taking suggestions for where the next liturgy is most needed.
