Item Description...
David Anderson has been a popular columnist in his parish for many years. Writing about everyday experiences-like cleaning up the yard after a rainstorm, waiting in the doctor's office, even helping his teenage daughters pick out fall dresses-he explores how the divine can surprise us in ordinary events.

Breakfast Epiphanies is a collection of his wonderfully written, true-life tales. In these inspiring stories, Anderson writes with disarming honesty and a great deal of humor about relationships-both within his family and within the community he serves. He writes about a family argument that turns ugly, an awkward but triumphant date to his first father-daughter dance, and the night his church burned down. He also writes about personal spirituality, but always from the ground up. A story begins in some ordinary event-listening to a baby cry in a crowded airplane-and opens out to a new, sometimes offbeat awareness of the divine.

Whether Baptist or Buddhist, Catholic or Congregationalist, we all yearn to find splendor in the ordinary. Breakfast Epiphanies speaks to the hearts and minds in all of us, no matter what faith we practice.
'I wish David Anderson had written Breakfast Epiphanies twenty years ago. Reading it then would have made me a better person, parent, and pastor. In any event, I'm glad it's here now. And I bet you will be too.' --Philip Gulley, author of Just Shy of Harmony and Front Porch Tales

Breakfast Epiphanies has been chosen for a Spirituality & Health Magazine Award as one of "The Best Spiritual Books of 2002."
David Anderson is rector of Trinity Church in Solebury, Pennsylvania, and a columnist for The Pennsylvania Episcopalian. He has received various awards for his writing, including a Lilly Endowment grant. He lives with his wife, Pam Anderson, a cookbook author, and his two daughters in New Hope, Pennsylvania.

Everyday Simplicity  Mar 31, 2003
A wonderful book! Father David Anderson (an Episcopal priest from Bucks County PA) has written a book that is spiritually uplifting. It is an enjoyable read for the religious and the non-religious alike. He has elements of Buddahism as well as the Benedictine and Franciscan spirituality of seeing the wonder of the spirit of God in the daily grind that we all live each day. Highly recommended!!
I'm Giving Them Away for Christmas!  Dec 6, 2002
The way I know if a movie is good is if I want to see it twice. The same goes for books. I've read Breakfast Epiphanies and I'm going through it again.

I read a lot in this genre of self-help and spirituality and I have to say, this book caught me by surprise. Partly it's because there's such a light touch to every story. Anderson is a pastor but he doesn't preach.

I loved the one titled, Hands off: We Hatch Alone. It's about his visit to a kindergarten class where they were hatching a box of chicks. All the children were instructed to keep their hands folded behind their backs. Anderson did too. And then he spins a gentle tale of how this simple posture of attentive detachment works in our relationships. "We cannot stop drinking for someone else...we cannot lift the pall of depression...If they are going to break into freedom, they will have to hatch themselves."

And so it goes, story after story. There's the one about the cat, Oliver, who has the instinct to hunt but when he actually gets outdoors, meekly returns to the warmth of the kitchen. I sat there thinking about all the times the door of opportunity slid open for me and I retreated. I have a name for this now. I used to call it fear. Now I call it Oliver.

Then there's the one about the woman who received last rites and came back to life for the love of meat loaf. And the one about American men (and husbands) and how the best path to spiritual growth and vital relationship with our spouse might just be dancing lessons.

Finally, I guess why I like this book is that Anderson is such a likeable guy. The book is solid gold but it has the warmth of a real person living a real life. He's smart and witty but he's also just a lot of fun, the kind of neighbor you'd be eager to see and talk to over the fence.

I loved this book. I'm giving them away for Christmas!

A great way to start the day - or finish it!  Nov 25, 2002
David Anderson manages to find the transcendent in everyday pursuits and happenings. You don't have to be an Episcopal clergyman (as he is), or have any religious belief at all, to identify, learn, and be touched by the wisdom in these brief, warm, funny, and enlightening encounters with the nitty-gritty of our lives. No story takes more than 5 minutes to read, so it's easy to pick up and put down again with little guilt - but with great reward.
