Pilgrims to the Manger
Exploring the Wonder of God With Us
by Naomi Starkey
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
I have reviewed BRF Advent to Epiphany books in the past by browsing through them but wanting to keep them for reading properly when Advent started. This time I began to read and found myself reading on and on, completely absorbed in the pilgrimage Naomi Starkey was leading.
The theme is a walk through an imaginary cathedral city; first through the town centre, then the suburbs, before going out into the country and viewing the city from a hilltop. Back into the city the next week is spent in the cathedral and the following week we travel home through the countryside to where we part from our fellow pilgrims on a quiet beach.
Every day we are encouraged to think about different issues arising from what we see around us and relating that reflection to the chosen Bible reading for the day. The complete reading is here in the book, the reflection is well worth time spent meditating upon and the closing prayer/reflection for the day is well worth remembering long after the Advent season.
