Description: In this moving and enlightening book, authors Herbert Anderson and Edward Foley show that when stories and rituals work together, they have the potential to be both mighty and dangerous -- mighty in their ability to lift us up and help us make connections beyond ourselves and dangerous in challenging us to learn to live with complexity and contradiction. Drawing upon a wealth of true stories, Anderson and Foley show how much more meaningful a baptism, wedding, or funeral can be when liturgy is made to include and recognize the personal stories of those involved. And they show how newly created rituals for life events usually unmarked by ritual -- such as adoption, divorce, or miscarriage -- can also help us connect our stories to the divine story, giving meaning to what we experience and bringing us closer to God.

Offers clergy, music ministers, and spiritual directors a powerful model for ministry that integrates story telling, myth making, and ritual into the everyday lives of individual parishioners -- and entire congregations.
