Every Moment Holy, Vol. 2: Death, Grief and Hope
May 4, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Please join the Regent College Bookstore for a conversation with Douglas Kaine McKelvey about his recent publication, Every Moment Holy, Vol. 2: Death, Grief and Hope. Douglas will be hosted by Regent’s Associate Dean of Students, Claire Perini.
Every Moment Holy, Vol. 2: Death, Grief, and Hope, the much-anticipated follow-up to Every Moment Holy Vol. 1, is a book of liturgies for seasons of dying and grieving. This volume includes prayers such as “A Liturgy for the Scattering of Ashes,” “A Liturgy for the Loss of a Spouse,” and “A Liturgy for the Wake of a National Tragedy.” These prayers are ways of reminding us that our lives are shot through with sacred purpose and eternal hope even when, and especially when, suffering and pain threaten to overwhelm us. Volume II is releasing April 2021, and will be available at the Regent College Bookstore.
Douglas Kaine McKelvey grew up in East Texas and moved to Nashville in 1991 to participate in the early work of Charlie Peacock’s Art House Foundation, an organization dedicated to a shared exploration of faith and the arts. In the decades since, he has worked as an author, song lyricist, scriptwriter, and video director. He has penned more than 350 lyrics recorded by a variety of artists including Switchfoot, Kenny Rogers, Sanctus Real, and Jason Gray. He and his wife Lise have three grown daughters and two sons-in-law. Douglas has served for the last four years as the sexton at St. John’s Anglican Church in Franklin, Tennessee.
