Readings and Reflections from Advent to Epiphany
This small book of daily Bible readings and reflections for Advent follows the themes associated with the four candles of the Advent wreath: the first week looks at The Patriarchs - Pointers of Promise; the second The Prophets - Alarm Calls from God; the third The Baptist - Preparing the Way; the fourth The Birth - Around Christ's Crib.
The subsequent weeks are On to Epiphany - Light to the Nations and Candlemas and Beyond - Light for Our Lives. For each day there is a passage from the Bible included within the text (you will recognise the familiar Carol Service readings), a meditation and a prayer. At the end of each week there are suggestions for a group Taking Time Together.
This is well-written and engaging with poetry, prose and pictures. Plenty of food for thought. The author encourages us to put the waiting back into the wanting.
