Today’s episode of CTL is the second part of a conversation between host MacKenzie Koppa and Jenn Giles Kemper, the founder and the heart behind Sacred Ordinary Days. If you missed the first part of their chat, you can go back and listen to Episode 92 here.

  • The value of different styles of worship for different personalities and preferences
  • The richness of praying the prayers of people who have gone before us


  • Different types of prayer for different times and seasons
  • The gift of the liturgical year
  • A brief explanation of the different seasons of the church year
  • Room for growth through embracing the rhythms of the liturgical year
  • Resources and ideas for celebrating Advent
    • Sacred Ordinary Days Advent resources
    • Choose a spiritual practice to commit to doing during Advent
    • Advent calendars or Advent candles
    • Start small and ask yourself “What would it look like for me to create room for Christ to come?”
  • A typical day in the life of Jenn and her family
