Another of Church House Publishing little books for Advent. This year’s booklet, as the Archbishop of Canterbury says, is an invitation to ‘slow down... and take time to look inwards at our hopes and fears: to look outwards at a world in need of hope; and to look God-ward, confident in His love and commitment to the world.
To help us to do this, there are simple suggestions for each day to make us think more deeply about a specific issue by reading, reflecting and praying.
A pocket sized book that will be as easy to follow as it is to carry in a pocket or bag. Well done CHP!
