Praying Advent

Three Minute Reflections on Peace, Faithfulness Joy and Light

by Joan Mueller


Price: £5.95
Publisher:New City
Published:Autumn 2010
This small compact book is full of essential reading for the run-up to Christmas. It consists of relevant scripture readings for Advent from both Testaments, then a meditation on this reading, followed by a suggested spiritual practice to do during the day. This last part is particularly useful as it involves a self examination of our lives and priorities. It emphasises the true preparation we should be making amid all the other demands of the Christmas season. The book is divided into four weekly sessions with a slot for each day. Only ten minutes reading each morning, but as much time as one can spare during the day, for reflection and action.
