Daily Meditations for Advent
Having a daily practice of spiritual readings geared for the season can be a rich part of our spiritual lives. This year two small publications have just been offered by the company “Forward Movement” (who bring us the Forward Day-by-Day series) that contain daily readings for Advent through Christmas. One is Joy of Heaven, to Earth Come Down by Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, and the other is Cheer our Spirits, Make Safe the Way by Francisco Garcia. These small books are 3 x 5 — small enough to carry around — and offer very thoughtful daily reflections of a couple of pages in length. Bullitt-Jonas focuses on reference for the earth and intentional living. Garcia explores the journey of Advent and Christmas through familiar hymns and carols, with Latino festivals woven in. Both are gifted writers, and these booklets are both excellent. They are $4 each, with a discount if we buy 10 or more. There will be a sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall. We will place the order on Monday so that, hopefully, they will be here by next Sunday.
