From the back cover: Sara Wenger Shenk believes that small events as well as major life passages are worthy of notice.
In "Why Not Celebrate!" she offers suggestions for Christians who want to celebrate "the silences, the clasped hands, the broken loaf and the first evening star" of an ordinary day, in addition to seasons from the church year and secular calendar.
"Why Not Celebrate!" includes 150 celebrations for daily, weekly and occasional events. These activities, readings, and songs are designed for use by Christians from a variety of traditions, Catholic and Protestant, in families, small groups or retreat settings.
