Reading Chad Abbott’s Sacred Habits: The Rise of the Creative Clergy reminded me of the deep and wondrous gatherings I was privileged to participate in during the time I was involved in campus ministry or attending seminary. Abbott invited a host of friends to each contribute one thematic chapter to Sacred Habits, and reading one voice after another, shifting from one topic to another, took me right back to those old Spirit-infused encounters with groups of old and new friends always ready to take even a casual conversation to deep and important places.
I am somewhat sad “writing a book review” wasn’t included in the list of Sacred Habits, but thankfully I can still be “a clergy rising from the ashes” (the title of Rev. Abbot’s concluding chapter).
