This ecumenical collection of prayers, liturgies and rituals seeks to illustrate the impressive creativity fo liturgy from the ground up - from congregations, groups and individuals struggling to come to terms with change and all the celebration and loss which that involves. A wealth of human experiences is explored and expressed through experimental rituals: expressions of god, namings, affirming relationships, separating, dying, grieving, healing, retirement, abortion, miscarriage, and much more. It is hoped that this anthology will imspire and enable others to construct their own liturgies, rituals, blessings and prayers. Hannah Ward and Jennifer Wild are former members of Anglican religious orders. They are co-founders of Womanpsace, a spritituality programme. Their book Guard the Chaos: Finding Meaning in Change was published in 1995.
