Holy Stuff of Life
Stories, Poems, and Prayers about Human Things

Heather Murray Elkins

Holy Stuff of Life Holy Stuff of Life: Stories, Poems, and Prayers about Human Things is a book about "stuff." We are stuff. What really makes us what and whose we are? Heather Murray Elkins explores the human, yet holy, connections of things such as: apple seeds, a tattoo, dishtowels, a broken chalice, and extra-virgin cooking oil blessed by the pope. You will be moved from wanting to consume more to seeing the holy in the stuff around you.
