I seem to have misplaced my Book of Common Prayer. But even without that, I love (a) how you term "love God, love your neighbor" a "cheat sheet" for Christian living, and (b) your insistence that every single aspect of everyday life is included. The trick to the latter is, I think, threefold: (1) cultivating mindfulness but also (2) forming habits, and (3) finding day to day faithfulness a source of joy and not just a matter of dutifulness.


Jack, thanks for your kind words. There's a BCP online, should you ever want to verify what I say about it. I do think you're right about the 3 "tricks" to Christian living. For me they're all a challenge, but perhaps the third most challenging of all for me. Joy, not duty -- there's the rub!
