An Ordinary Office

Every now and then we stumble across real treasures – that we want to share here at New Roots.
An Ordinary Office is one of those treasures – and we simply commend it to you!
It comes from Disability and Jesus – a small organisation that is rooted in the lived experience of people with disability. An Ordinary Office is becoming a community of ‘all abilities praying together three times a day. The material is available in clear print, on auio, on video and in Makaton. The video here is the Sunday morning office. There are resources form morning, midday and evening. It is helpful to have ‘nocturne’ – a form of prayer for when you jus cant’ sleep, and resources for when you just can’t pray.

The tradition of stopping to pray at regular times of the day is deeply held within many of the wold faiths. For Christians ‘the Office’ is the name given to the monastic form of prayer, marking the transition of the day – morning, noon and night. As many rediscover the value of this form of prayer – this resource from Disability and Jesus is very welcome. It is accessible and provides in a number of formats a way of regularly stopping to pray.

So if you are looking for something to help keep you rooted – give this a go!
