Praying in Time The Hours & Days in Step with Orthodox Christian Tradition
by Vassa Larin (Eugene/Oregon: Wipf & Stock 2023)

Description: It has been said that a major problem of our twenty-four-seven internet age is that people increasingly lack "purpose" and "meaning" in their lives. And the most influential people of our day, the tech geniuses and self-help gurus, seem convinced that "we" are the ones who are to create this purpose or meaning for ourselves, just as we invent new technologies and self-help programs. In this context, Sister Vassa Larin invites the Christian reader to rediscover a handy instrument from the toolbox of ancient Christian tradition, which can fill our every hour and every day with faith-based meaning and purpose: the practice of praying and "commemorating" every weekday and every time of day, according to the traditioned, liturgical meaning of each day and hour. Combining engaging theological explanations with practical prayer tips, Sister Vassa offers a simple and flexible way of living this prayer tradition, so it is sustainable even amidst a busy schedule.
