About-

When our communities are shaken by school shootings and natural disasters, ministry leaders are first on the scene to care for the people. Churches and worshiping bodies are frequently searching for ways to participate in social justice to stand in solidarity with their neighbors. We often find ourselves speechless when we learn that people within our own pews are silently living without support for mental illness or abusive relationships. Breath for the Breathless offers liturgies in response to the difficult seasons we face. These worship services and prayers are fully prepared so that pastors, Christian educators, chaplains, and ministry leaders can be equipped with the liturgy they need in a crisis. This is the resource faith leaders want on their shelf so they can spend more time on pastoral care and less time on worship preparation. May these words help faith communities pause, unite, and catch their breath.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Glory’s words, life, poetry, and theology are a rare combination that breathes life into lifeless situations. As a leadership development specialist, I coached and trained many who I believed had ‘potential.’ Glory’s work, however, caused me to step back and recognize that God flows through her in ways one cannot be trained. Her liturgies go beneath the conscious mind, touching and igniting us to move forward into a hurting world with confidence, creativity, and passionate justice.”

—Rebekah Carpenter, pastor, leadership development specialist, and performing artist
