A thoughtful, wide-ranging, witty exploration of the spiritual gifts of taking care of hearth and home
Margaret Kim Peterson takes a fresh look at the activities and attitudes of keeping house and making a home everything from cleanliness to care of clothing to cooking and sharing meals to hospitality and other practices that reach far beyond the household to the world at large. With both thoughtful reflection and lively anecdotes, she reveals how all those tasks, when viewed in a new and more faithful way, can be seen as spiritual practices that embody and express concrete and positive ways of living out Christian faith in relationship to others at home, in the church, and in the world.
