Holy Grounds: The Surprising Connection Between Coffee and Faith -- From Dancing Goats to Satan's Drink  If you like your coffee with a bit of inspiration, a hint of humor, and a dose of insight, you'll enjoy pouring a mug full of java and curling up with Holy Grounds. Popular author and avid coffee drinker Tim Schenck brews just the right blend of the personal and historical as he explores the sometimes amusing and often profound intersection between faith and coffee.

Father Tim's Church Survival Guide 
From the Introduction: “My take on church life isn’t for everyone—clergy who take themselves too seriously will hate it. But know that it all comes out of a place of deep love for God and the Church. There are inevitably things that drive us nuts about such an imperfect (i.e., human) institution. Yet if we can’t observe and comment on our own foibles we’re left without much hope. And anyway if God doesn’t have a sense of humor, I’m hosed."

Dust Bunnies in the Basket: Finding God in Lent & Easter
Episcopal priest Tim Schenck offers good humor and spiritual direction for the journey through Lent and Easter. With keen observations and a clever wit, Schenck connects the mundane with the divine, from dust bunnies and egg hunts to foot washing and the Easter Vigil. Illustrated by popular cartoonist Jay Sidebotham, Dust Bunnies in the Basket challenges us to go deeper this Lent, to "kick up some dust every now and then, to roll up our sleeves and get involved with the world and the people around us."

Do you believe God can be found in both the miraculous and the mundane? Through 40 essays you'll encounter God within the chaos of everyday life. Divine presence is revealed in a family room fish tank, a child’s probing questions, the town pool, and the drive-thru window of a local fast food chain.

Dog in the Manger: Finding God in Christmas Chaos
Maintain your spiritual sanity through the frequently frenetic chaos of Advent and Christmas. Illustrated by popular cartoonist Jay Sidebotham, Dog in the Manger also explores familiar characters in new ways, including John the Baptist, Mary, Joseph and, of course, Jesus.

Reading your church survival guide and it is delightful. Though your section on names is helpful, it didn't go quite far enough. What is the difference among rector, vicar, and priest in charge? I am a 'late in life, bishops ring on the head' Episcopalian, and I must have missed that class. I am also a Lent Madness faithful.
